Living Along the Fenceline, filmscreening & dialogue


Womens Voices, Women Speak invites you to a screening of the award-winning documentary "Living Along the Fenceline," as part of DVAC's Domestic Violence Awareness Month programming series.

Friday Oct 25, 2013 
6-8pm
The Arts at Marks Garage
1159 Nuʻuanu Ave

Featuring stories of women in Hawai'i, Guam, Philippines, Okinawa, Texas, Vieques and South Korea, this film highlights how the culture of violence in the military infuses daily life around the bases. But in women's resistance to violence, alternative ideas of peace and genuine security continue to emerge.

The film has won Best Feature Documentary, Toronto Female Eye Film Festival 2013, and has been shown at the Guam-USA International Film Festival, and Jeju Women's Film Festival. More information on the film, see http://www.alongthefenceline.com/
