Join us at the winery for two documentary films and informed conversation on global and local issues of gender injustice.
Evan Grae Davis, the Director of award winning documentary, It's a Girl!, will be with us to discuss the issue of gendercide, answer questions, and offer suggestions for advocacy and affecting change. After our screening of Power and Control, local representatives from Genesis Women's Shelter will share about domestic violence in Dallas and equip us to take action locally.
It's A Girl! - This award winning documentary explores the unsettling cultural traditions that surround widespread female "gendercide" and violence toward women in India and China. Using startling statistics and emotional personal accounts, It's A Girl illuminates the misogyny, poverty and antiquated cultural practices that combine to make gendercide a complex issue to tackle.
Power And Control -This multi-level narrative examines the deepest causes of domestic violence and the solutions that have evolved to stop it, celebrating the battered women’s movement activists who started the domestic violence revolution 30 years ago, and examining alternative approaches now being advocated. Kim, a Duluth, MN mother of three, is at the center of the story. As she takes up residence in a shelter, we follow the harrowing struggles in a single-parenting survivor’s quest to find work, housing and peace of mind.
Both films will run simultaneously in two separate rooms. The first showing begins at 7:15, and the second showing begins at 8:45, giving you two chances to see each film and allowing you to join us for just one or both documentaries.
Each screening will be followed by informed conversation with advocates and culture changers. There will be a short break in between to switch rooms, refill your glass, and grab a snack.
