"Until the Violence Stops,"the first documentary on V-Day, the global movement to end violence against women and girls, will world premiere as a special screening at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival on Saturday, January 17 at 6:00 PM. The film will have its commercial free broadcast premiere on Lifetime Television on Tuesday, February 17 at 10:00 PM (ET/PT).
In 2002, eight hundred cities participated in a movement to end violence against women and girls called V-Day, which grew out of Eve Ensler's award-winning play, "The Vagina Monologues." "Until the Violence Stops" is a one-hour documentary, that follows the uplifting/empowering 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 first-time director Abby Epstein, the story begins at a star-studded V-Day benefit at Harlem's Apollo Theater, travels to regional events in Ukiah, California, the Philippines and Pine Ridge Indian Reservation near Rapid City, South Dakota, and culminates 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.
The documentary features appearances by Founder/Playwright Eve Ensler, Jane Fonda, Glenn Close, Isabella Rossellini, Mary Alice, Queen Latifah, Rosie Perez, LisaGay Hamilton, Salma Hayek, Rosario Dawson, Hazelle Goodman, and Tantoo Cardinal.
