Free film at Soka, March 8th

Free film March 8 at Soka, Helena Modjeska story

Living in the OC and drving up Santiago Canyon Road (to boycott paying a toll fee) enjoying the scenery as I pass historic Irvine Lake to reach RSM or Foothill Ranch,  I’ve wondered about Modjeska Canyon.   And who was Helena Modjeska.  Have you? 

If yes, here’s a freebie documentary at Soka University in Aliso Viejo on March 8th at 7 pm.  Soka’s known for quality, informative cultural programs so I’m sure this’ll be worth watching.—woman-triumphant—a-documentary-film.aspx
