Newcastle White Ribbon Day Film Screening
25 November 2016
Please join us this White Ribbon Day to look beneath the surface of domestic and family violence and challenge the assumptions that pervade society.
Domestic and family violence is an insidious issue that affects one in three women in Australia. On average, one woman is killed every week at the hands of their partner.
The University of Newcastle is inviting our Newcastle community to attend the screening of the award-winning short film, Still Waters, and rethink domestic and family violence.
ABOUT THE FILM
Still Waters is a short film written and directed by UK filmmaker Timur Bernard. The film explores an oppressive relationship between a competing swimmer and her increasingly controlling husband. The film was selected and awarded at the Monaco International Film Festival in 2013.
This event marks the first day of the 16 days of activism for the elimination of gender violence.
Hosted by the Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education.
