See "Until the Violence Stops" in White Plains, NY & Atlanta, GA Before Its Broadcast Debut


In 2002, eight hundred cities participated in V-Day, which grew out of Ensler's play, "The Vagina Monologues." "Until the Violence Stops" is a one-hour commercial-free documentary that 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, Rosie Perez, and Isabella Rossellini among others.

“Until The Violence Stops” will world premiere at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival on January 17 (6:00PM, Yarrow Theater) launching the film and the V-Day 2004 season. The Sundance premiere will be followed by a series of V-Day private benefit screenings in San Francisco, CA January 28); Ukiah, CA (January 30); Miami, FL (February 1); White Plains, NY (February 6); Atlanta, GA (February 11); and Santa Fe, NM (January 26).
