VITO Project and Butch, Please! present a Cheryl Dunye classic - Stranger Inside (2001).
Dunye, also director of the soon to be re-released seminal black lesbian film The Watermelon Woman (1996), Stranger Inside explores the intersections of race, feminism, motherhood and sexulality within the prison system. All way before Orange is the New Black.
The film will be followed by a panel and discussion with:
Campbell X Campbellx Crew - Director of Stud Life (2012)
Dorett Jones - Black feminist film maker and co-curator of this year's London Feminist Film Festival.
This is a FREE event but we need your donations on the night to ensure the continuation of the VITO project. All donations go towards covering the costs associated with running the event (film licences, heating and lighting, rental of the premises, printing, promotion etc). Donations are VITO's only source of funding and we need to raise an average of £5 per person just to cover our costs. So PLEASE DIG DEEP and give us a paper donation if you are able to.
Doors to the cafe/bar will open at 6pm for a 7pm screening. Come early to secure a seat as it can get very busy and we do not take bookings. The doors to the Cinema will be shut once capacity is reached.
