This screening is part of our Black History Month at VIFF Vancity Theatre and will be followed by a Vancity Impact Talk, moderated by Vancity board member and lawyer Niki Sharma, and with panelists Mebrat Mimi Beyene of WISH Drop-In Centre Society and Angela Marie MacDougall of BWSS Battered Women's Support Services.

«An important historical document about an event that prompted a larger cultural conversation about sexual harassment.» Miriam Bale, The New York Times.

«Enthralling and revealing.» Duane Byrge, The Hollywood Reporter.
