Screening & Panel Presentation of The Line at the Center for Sex and Culture

October 6, 2010

Join the conversation about sexual boundaries with this screening and panel presentation with the filmmaker.

Told through a sex-positive lens, THE LINE is a 24 minute documentary about a young woman – the filmmaker — who is raped. Refusing to be a victim, the filmmaker confronts her attacker, recording the conversation with a hidden camera. Sex workers, survivors and activists discuss justice, accountability and today’s “rape culture.” The film asks the question: Where is the line defining consent?

The film will be followed by a panel discussion including the filmmaker, Nancy Schwartzman; Good Vibrations Staff Sexologist Carol Queen; Broadsheet’s Tracy Clark Flory; and others TBA.

When: October 12. 2010
Time: 7:30pm – 9:30pm
Cost:
$10-$12 suggested donation
Where:
Center for Sex and Culture – 1519 Mission St (between 11th and South Van Ness)
