PAST: FILM: First Community Screening of the Documentary "Voices From Within" focusing on the lives of four residents of Saint Elizabeths, followed by a Panel Discussion and Q&A this WED, Nov 6th from 7:00pm - 9:00pm, Free
Wednesday, November 6th
7:00pm - 9:00pm
The public is invited to the first community screening of “Voices From Within” a documentary and culmination of the Video Diary Project, which began in the summer of 2010. The film provides an intimate look into the lives of four residents of Saint Elizabeths psychiatric hospital, continuing past their experiences in the Video Diary Project. All of them have serious mental illness, all have committed crimes, and each courageously reveals his story through the intimacy of video diaries. Confronting misconceptions and unfair stereotypes about a controversial and stigmatized population, this film reminds us of our common humanity. After the film, join the producer/director and distinguished panelists, including the individual-in-care filmmakers, after the screening for a lively Q&A.
Special thanks to Women in Film and Video DC, the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, and the Humanities Council of Washington DC for their support with this project.
