Voices in Action: Human Rights on Film – PRIVATE VIOLENCE

Private Violence

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. Every day in the U.S. at least four women are murdered by abusive (and often, ex-) partners. Through the eyes of two survivors—Deanna Walters, a mother who seeks justice for the crimes committed against her at the hands of her estranged husband, and Kit Gruelle, an advocate who seeks justice for all women—we bear witness to the complex realities of intimate partner violence. In the process, the film shapes powerful, new questions that hold the potential to change our society: “Why does he abuse?” “Why do we turn away?” “How do we build a future without domestic violence?” (81 mins.)

PRIVATE VIOLENCE screens Sunday, October 26 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The film is being presented as part of our Voices in Action: Human Rights on Film series.
Tickets are available online or at the door.
