Topic: Screening, Q & A for THE LINE

Description: Told through a "sex-positive" lens, The Line is a documentary (24 min) 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". Please join the filmmaker Nancy Schwartzman, and outreach staff Melissa Gira Grant and Melanie Wallner for a screening, snacks and Q & A.
