Until The Violence Stops (special screening)
Dir. Abby Epstein, USA 2005
Eve Ensler's award winning book The Vagina Monologues has grown from an award winning play to an international grassroots movement to stop violence against women and girls. Until The Violence Stops documents women from Harlem to Ukiah, California; from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to the Philippines and Kenya - just some of the 800 cities around the world who participated in V-Day benefit stagings of The Vagina Monologues.
Director Abby Epstein takes a poignant journey into the hearts of women and includes revealing testimonies from men, who expose social and cultural attitudes that perpetuate the pervasive violence against women. In emotionally charged interviews and performances, everyday women and celebrities (including Rosie Perez, Salma Hayek and Jane Fonda) embrace their bodies, reconcile their past, and bond together to break the silence that surrounds abuse.
More than just testimonies and performances, Until the Violence Stops is a film about empowerment and the importance of dialogue in the healing process. A celebration of women reclaiming their bodies and lives, this moving documentary leaves us with hope that change can happen.

  1. Cuban,

    Thank you for your post on the Further Left Forum regarding Until The Violence Stops. It is now on the Forum, and links to your blog and blogger profile have been added to the Forum's Contributors list. We invite your further Forum participation as well as taking from our Further Left Library.

    There is a regular supporter of our Further Left Chat Room who is in London and very much concerned with the staging's topic. I will make sure she sees your post on the Forum as well as this blog and am certain she will be in attendance at the event.

    Dejame llamarte compañero Cuban. Voy a salirte cantando las palabras de José Martí "Con los pobres de la tierra, Quiero yo mi suerte echar, El arroyo de la sierra, Me complace más que el mar."
