Thu, Feb 23, 6pm: Free Screening of THE LINE to end sexual violence
FREE SCREENING: THE LINE, Feb.23
On Thursday, February 23, 2012, Nancy Schwartzman will present her critically acclaimed short film, THE LINE and its companion media campaign to empower young leaders to end sexual violence. The film is our first event in the Spring, 2012 Center for Health, Media & Policy's HEALTH in FILM & NEW MEDIA series.
THE LINE is a documentary about a young woman – the filmmaker- who is raped, but her story isn't cut and dry. Not a "perfect victim," the filmmaker confronts her attacker, recording the conversation with a hidden camera. Sex workers, survivors and activists discuss justice, accountability and today's "rape culture." The film asks the question: where is the line defining consent?
Schwartzman's WHERE IS YOUR LINE CAMPAIGN - believes that documentary films can create social change, with the right partners and the right platforms. WHERE IS YOUR LINE is a non-profit organization and movement that is committed to empowering young leaders to create a world without sexual violence. See how the campaign is creating critical dialogues and new media to inspire action.
Join us for a fascinating and thought-provoking evening!
