Cook: Film documenting Men's RIghts Movement screened June 24 in FH

When feminist filmmaker Cassie Jaye sets out to document the mysterious and polarizing world of the Men’s Rights Movement, she begins to question her own beliefs. Jaye had only heard about the Men’s Rights Movement as being a misogynist hate-group aiming to turn back the clock on women’s rights, but when she spends a year filming the leaders and followers within the movement, she learns the various ways men are disadvantaged and discriminated against. The Red Pill challenges the audience to pull back the veil, question societal norms, and expose themselves to an alternate perspective on gender equality, power and privilege.

We invite members of the community to view the Red Pill for themselves and make up their own minds about it. The Red Pill recently won the Women in Film award in Los Angeles, not for just for best documentary but for best film, and was likewise awarded the Louisiana Film Festival best film award.

The screening will take place June 24, 2017 at Brickworks at 3pm. Admission is free though donations are appreciated. Afterword’s, please join us for a lively discussion where your input and thoughts are welcome.
