The Houston Feminist Movement and Hollaback Houston Present: The LinePosted: August 22, 2011
SEPTEMBER 1O @ 7PM, TE HOUSE OF TEA!
We, along with Hollaback! Houston, will be presenting a Pay What You Will viewing of the short documentary, The Line.
A one night stand far from home goes terribly wrong. As the filmmaker unravels her experience, she decides to confront her attacker.
Told through a “sex-positive” lens, The Line is a 24 minute documentary about a young woman – the filmmaker- who is raped, but her story isn’t cut and dry. Not a “perfect victim,” the filmmaker confronts her attacker, recording the conversation with a hidden camera. Sex workers, survivors and activists discuss justice, accountability and today’s “rape culture.” The film asks the question: where is the line defining consent? Shown in film festivals around the world, The Line was released in September 2009, and is a top selling film with educational distributor, the Media Education Foundation.
There will be a Q&A session following the film. This will be a great opportunity to bring your questions regarding rape culture and feminism. You will also have an opportunity to mingle with some wonderful activists from the Houston area. (There will also be swing dancing afterwards!)
This should be a great event, tackling many important issues. Keep your eyes open for a follow up blog post!
