This is from Dina. I am not organising anything formally, but feel free to post on the message board if you're coming, then everyone can gather together.
Saturday, April 12, 5:30pm-8:00pm
The New School, Tishman Auditorium
66 West 12th Street, NYC
Admission: Free, no tickets or reservations required
The United Nations Department of Public Information, HBO, and
The New School present documentaries addressing the global
issue of gender-based violence.
Screenings begin with shorts produced by UNTV followed by the
featured film, The Greatest Silence: Rape in the Congo.* The
latest work by Emmy Award winner Lisa F. Jackson looks at the
decade-old epidemic of kidnapping, rape and torture of women
and girls in the civil war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo.
A Q&A session with the filmmaker and representatives from the
United Nations and The New School concludes the evening.
*The film?s educational distributor is Women Make Movies.
