Women's Human Rights Film Series: "Private Violence" @ Merriam Park Library | Saint Paul | Minnesota | United States
About “Private Violence“ This film explores a simple but deeply disturbing fact of American life: the most dangerous place for a woman in America is her own home. Every day in the U.S., at least four women are murdered by abusive (and often, ex) partners. Through the eyes of two survivors we witness the complex reality of intimate partner violence.

Women's Human Rights Film Series: "Scheherazade’s Diary" @ Hamline Midway Library | Saint Paul | Minnesota | United States
About “Scheherazade’s Diary” This engaging tragicomic documentary follows women inmates through a 10-month drama therapy/theater project set up in 2012 by director Zeina Daccache at the Baabda Prison in Lebanon. Through their unprecedented theater initiative entitled “Scheherazade in Baabda”, these “murderers of husbands, adulterers and drug felons” reveal their stories—tales of domestic violence, traumatic childhoods, failed marriages, forlorn romances, and deprivation of motherhood. The women of Baabda Prison share their personal stories, and in doing so, hold up a mirror to Lebanese society and all societies that repress women.  About the Film Series The Friends and The Advocates for Human Read the Rest...
