Following the 11 AM service in the Board Room
Your Film Project has chosen to make the subject of domestic violence the focus of the fifth film of our current series. This 2010 documentary explores the causes of domestic violence and the solutions that have evolved to stop it, celebrating the activists who demanded change in the 1980’s and examining new alternative approaches that are now being advocated. This film introduces us to the “Duluth Model” and looks at the challenges from outside critics of this approach. We are reminded of the prevalence of domestic violence, whether it manifests in physical, sexual and/or emotional abuse and the silence that often surrounds it. An important subject and a well crafted exploration of it in this 50 minute film.
Discussion, as always, follows viewing of the film. Please bring whatever you wish to eat. We will offer a snack, not lunch.
