An award-winning filmmaker is spending a week at Governors State University, and she’s planning to share her insight on faith and forgiveness.

Helen Whitney is scheduled to be at GSU, 1 University Parkway in University Park, this week as a Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow, and is scheduled to meet with students, faculty, staff and others. She’s presenting a 90-minute segment of her 2011 PBS film, “Forgiveness: A Time to Love and a Time to Hate,” at 6 p.m. March 13 at GSU’s Center for Performing Arts.

There will be a discussion of her book by the same name to follow.

Whitney’s resume includes an Oscar nomination, two Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards, a George Foster Peabody Award, an Edward R. Murrow Award for distinguished journalism, an Emmy Award, and awards from The Writer’s Guild of America, The Director’s Guild of America, The Hamptons International Film Festival and The San Francisco International Film Festival.
