We are hosting a movie night in honour of International Women's Day and will be screening two documentaries made by women, about women:
Ohero:kon - Under the Husk follows two Mohawk girls on their journey to become Mohawk women and is a personal story of a traditional practice challenging young girls spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically, shaping the women they become. Watch the trailer here.
Ovarian Psycos is about a fierce and unapologetic group of young women of color who confront injustice, build community, and redefine identity through a raucous, irreverently named bicycle crew: The Ovarian Psycos Cycle Brigade. Watch the trailer here. (Trigger warning: this film contains references to sexual abuse and rape.)
Reserve your spot here.
This event is free, but we will be accepting donations for the Support Network for Indigenous Women & Women of Colour, so please consider bringing some cash with you.
** Please avoid wearing perfume, cologne or other scented products. **
