City of Joy Screening

Join us for a screening of the award-winning documentary film CITY OF JOY and talk back with Eve and Christine on February 13 in Oakland, CA at the Grand Lake Theatre.  CITY OF JOY<http://action.vday.org/site/R?i=rkmNA_nW-CThXsnxaFuDQg>, directed by first-time director Madeleine Gavin, follows the first class of women at a revolutionary leadership center in eastern Congo called City of Joy<http://action.vday.org/site/R?i=6SQ3XsDoX0Mfwu9vRbMYhA>, from which the film derives its title, and weaves their journey as burgeoning leaders with that of the center's founders (a devout Congolese doctor Dr. Denis Mukwege (2018 Nobel Peace Prize winner), women's rights activist Christine Schuler-Deschryver (Director of City of Joy and V-Day Congo) and radical feminist Eve Ensler (author of The Vagina Monologues and Founder of V-Day/One Billion Rising) - three individuals who imagined a place where women who have suffered horrific rape and abuse can heal and become powerful voices of change for their country. A story about the profound resilience of the human spirit, CITY OF JOY witnesses Congolese women's fierce will to reclaim hope, even when so much of what was meaningful to them has been stripped away.
