Sunday, February 3, 7:00pm … what will you be doing? Watching the Super Bowl game? Might you be seeking an alternative?
Join V-Day Petaluma for the award-winning documentary, Until The Violence Stops, on, ironically, a day with one of the highest incidents of relationship violence. We’ll be screening the documentary in the warm, cozy atmosphere of La Dolce Vita Wine Bar, for only $5. The screening begins at 7:00pm, so get there early to order any food and beverages you might wish to enjoy. 70 minute length; appropriate for ages 13+.
Until the Violence Stops shows women from Harlem to Ukiah, California; from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to the Philippines and Kenya, uniting and courageously revealing their intimate and deeply painful experiences with abuse ranging from rape to female circumcision.
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.
“I wanted to comment on your decision to show the film after SuperBowl Sunday. Bravo! How timely! Perhaps you are already aware of this, but when I worked for the Battered Womens Hotline, we had the most calls of violence after the SuperBowl game. The worst day of the year for women who are under threat of abuse. Thank you for providing a place to gather and raise consciousness.” ~ Nancy, Petaluma
