Free Community Film Screening: ‘Private Violence’
October 11, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Please join the Alliance Against Domestic Abuse and Project Sellars Space as we bring a FREE screening of the film, ‘Private Violence’.
An official selection at the Sundance Film Festival in 2014, ‘Private Violence’ explores a simple, but deeply disturbing fact of American life: the most dangerous place for a woman in America is her own home.
This film immerses us in the lives of several women as they attempt to leave their abusers, setting them on a collision course with institutions that continuously and systematically fail them, often blaming victims for the violence they hope to fell. As the victims transform from victim to survivor, ‘Private Violence’ begins to shape powerful, new questions that hold the potential to change our society: “Why does he abuse?” “Why do we turn away?” “How do we begin to build a future without domestic violence?”
