Private Violence 

When: Thu., Feb. 1, 7 p.m. 2018
Price: $5 suggested donation

One of the worst, most under-addressed ills of American society is pervasive domestic violence. In her 2014 documentary, Private Violence, filmmaker Cynthia Hill follows two survivors: Deanna, whose husband evaded punishment after kidnapping and nearly killing her; and Kit Gruelle, who became an advocate for others whose lives have been shattered by domestic violence. The documentary examines the direct cruelty of the epidemic and the latent brutality of a criminal justice system that discredits survivors who must recount their worst traumas to unsympathetic prosecutors, police, and judges. —Allison HusseyCULTURE MILL LAB, SAXAPAHAW | 7 p.m., $5 suggested donation,
