April is sexual Assault Awareness month. So in solidarity we will be having movie screenings this month that bring awareness to this topic.
First movie of the month: North Country
Single mother Josey Aimes (Charlize Theron) is part of a group of the first women to work at a local iron mine in Minnesota. Offended that they have to work with women, male workers at Eveleth Mines lash out at them and subject them to sexual harassment. Appalled by the constant stream of insults, sexually explicit language and physical abuse, Josey -- despite being cautioned against it by family and friends -- files a historic sexual harassment lawsuit.
**This event is POT LUCK, so please try to bring a snack or beverage to share.**
This screening, and all #ScreeningsAtBernies, will be open to all! The purpose of these screenings is to bring people together to learn about these important issues. The screenings team is committed to covering as wide a range of topics as possible with this series. If there's any film you're interested in screening, please shoot us a message and let’s book it!
