Private Violence 

When: Sun., Sept. 25, 11 a.m. 2016


GLORIA STEINEM/private violence

A harrowing fact: the most dangerous place in America for a woman is her own home. Private Violence reminds viewers that this is a reality—and demands that it stop. The documentary explores the roots of domestic violence and its repercussions through the lens of survivors, including Kit Gruelle. She'll introduce the local screening on behalf of Durham-based director Cynthia Hill. The event also enjoys a visit from the inimitable feminist icon Gloria Steinem, who will discuss why she signed on as the film's executive producer and the role such work plays in changing our legal and societal landscape for the better. Expect a sharp, poignant conversation with both women after the film. —Victoria Bouloubasis
