DocuClub LA: In-Justice
Please join us Monday, March 19, for DocuClub LA with a screening of IN-JUSTICE by co-director Clementine Malpas. The film is produced by Sam French and Leslie Knott.
Following the screening, we will be joined by director Clementine Malpas (via Skype) and producer, Sam Fench for a moderated discussion led by Halima Kazem.
Raped by her uncle on the kitchen floor, 19 year old Gulnaz was thrown into prison for her dishonor. After President Karzai granted her an unprecedented pardon, she now faces a terrible choice: to seek asylum abroad or marry the man who raped her to regain her honor in society.
Fearing for her life after suffering terrible physical abuse at the hands of her husband, Farida fled to safety with the man she loved, but the pair were captured and thrown into prison for adultery. Facing a justice system that assumes she is guilty and a society that treats women like property, Farida’s only chance is to convince her husband to grant her a divorce. Will she and her lover find a future free from fear or will Farida’s story end like that of so many other women forced to submit to the honor of men?
Doors open at 7:00 pm. Screening, followed by a moderated feedback discussion with the filmmakers - 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm. Drinks and snacks will be available for a modest suggested donation.
Space is very limited so please update your RSVP if you can't make it so we can have a real count of the attendees. Admission not guaranteed, all RSVP's are first-come, first served.
