educate, inspire, challenge, and move you to action.


Dreamcatcher
Film screening and panel discussion. Dreamcatcher takes us into a hidden world through the eyes of one of its survivors; Brenda Myers-Powell. A former teenage prostitute who worked the streets of Chicago, Brenda defied the odds to become a powerful advocate for change in her community. With warmth and humour, Brenda gives hope to those who have none. Her story is their inspiration. For twenty-five years Brenda Myers-Powell called herself ‘Breezy’ and she dominated her world, or that’s what she thought. It was a world that had turned her into a teenage, drug-addicted prostitute. After a violent encounter with a ‘john,’ Brenda woke up in the hospital and decided to change her life. Today she is a beacon of hope and a pillar of strength for hundreds of women and girls as young as fourteen who want to change their own lives. ‘Dreamcatcher’ explores the cycle of neglect, violence and exploitation which each year leaves thousands upon thousands of girls and women feeling that prostitution is their only option to survive. By following the very charming, charismatic and truly empathic Brenda, we enter the lives of young women and see in verite footage their realities from their points of view. While the world may overlook these women and men, thankfully Brenda has not, providing an unflinching expose which contrasts seeming hopelessness against the difference that one person can make in the lives of many.

+ Add to Calendar 03/16/2017 6:30PM 03/16/2017 9:00PM 15 JUSTfilms: A fresh series of social justice films that will
educate, inspire, challenge, and move you to action.


Finding Dawn
Film screening and panel discussion. FINDING DAWN puts a human face on a tragedy that has received precious little attention – and one which is surprisingly similar to the situation in Ciudad Juarez, on the other side of the U.S. border. Dawn Crey, Ramona Wilson and Daleen Kay Bosse are just three of the estimated 500 Aboriginal women who have gone missing or been murdered in Canada over the past 30 years. Acclaimed Métis filmmaker Christine Welsh embarks on an epic journey to shed light on these murders and disappearances that remain unresolved to this day. She begins at Vancouver’s skid row where more than 60 poor women disappeared and travels to the “Highway of Tears” in northern British Columbia where more than two dozen women (all but one Native) have vanished. This engrossing film illustrates the deep historical, social and economic factors that contribute to the epidemic of violence against Aboriginal women. It highlights the disturbing, world-wide culture of impunity that allows murders of women – especially those who are poor, indigenous, or sex workers – to go unsolved and unpunished. Recommended viewing for courses in Native and Indigenous studies, women’s studies, sociology, psychology and courses that cover issues of violence against women.

Zero Weeks
Film screening and panel discussion. What do the United State and Papua New Guinea have in common? They are the only countries in the world without a paid family leave law. In 2011, only 11 percent of private sector workers and 17 percent of public workers reported that they had access to paid family leave through their employer. Because 44 percent of American households don’t have enough savings to cover their basic expenses for three months, the birth of a new child or a medical emergency can mean financial ruin. American families are often forced to choose between tending to a spouse or parent with an unexpected medical emergency, or keeping their job and health insurance. The crisis is just as bleak for pregnant American women. Twenty five percent of new mothers return to work within 10 days after giving birth. Without the protections of paid leave, new mothers are 40% more likely to end up on food stamps or public assistance. Once a fringe issue, paid leave is now central in the national debate. President Obama mentioned it in his State of the Union address and the Department of Labor has spearheaded a “Lead on Leave” tour. It’s not just political, it’s great economics: the three states that have implemented their own policies have experienced greater economic stability. Companies like Google, who have voluntarily offered over 16 weeks of paid leave, have seen their rates of attrition fall by 50%. Paid leave is not just good for families, marriages and the health of seniors, parents and children, but it’s beneficial for business and our nation’s ability to compete on a global scale. Weaving powerful emotional stories together with insightful interviews from leading policy makers, economists, and researchers, ZERO WEEKS lays out a compelling argument for guaranteed paid leave for every American worker. The film looks at paid leave from an emotional, medical, financial and global perspective. ZERO WEEKS is the fourth documentary by award-winning director, Ky Dickens. As a female director, with a trackrecord for creating poignant work known for shifting policy and public opinion, Dickens is an ideal filmmaker to tackle this project. Dickens was inspired to make a film about paid leave, after facing financial depletion and struggled with guilt and the emotional turmoil of “not enough time,”due to a lack of paid leave, after the birth of her first child.
