Your opinion: MVFF asks weekly question


The Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival’s Man on the Street series asks people probing questions about issues that are the subjects of their movies from the Summer Film Series line up. This week they asked for opinions on meditation, leading up to Wednesday night’s screening of “Free the Mind,” a documentary on Professor Richard Davidson’s methods used to study depression and anxiety.

“Free the Mind” screens July 17 at the Chilmark Community Center at 8 pm. A discussion follows the film with subject Rich Low; Willoughby Britton, research director of the Brown University Contemplative Studies Initiative; and moderated by Jake Davis of Chilmark, research affiliate at Brown University.
