"Until the Violence Stops" to screen on November 3, 2004, at the Amnesty International Film Festival in Vancouver, Canada
"Until the Violence Stops" follows the grassroots impact of V-Day in five international communities while exposing the pervasive and cultural forms of violence that women experience all over the world. Directed by Abby Epstein, the story begins at a star-studded V-Day benefit at Harlem's Apollo Theater and travels to regional events in Ukiah California, the Philippines, and Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, culminating in the opening of the first V-Day Safe House for girls in Kenya. What emerges is an alternately devastating and hopeful look at the global and grassroots efforts in motion to stop violence against women and girls. Featuring appearances by Tantoo Cardinal, Rosario Dawson, Eve Ensler, Jane Fonda, LisaGay Hamilton, Salma Hayek, Amy Hill, Rosie Perez, and Isabella Rossellini among others.
The Amnesty International Film Festival will take place in Vancouver, Canada from November 3-7, 2004. "Until the Violence Stops" will open the festival on November 3, 7pm, at The Ridge Theater (3131 Arbutus Street).
