"UnSlut" Screen...6:30 pm—8:30 pm
Monday, February 6 - Students Only
RESERVE YOUR SPOT
Wednesday, February 8 - Parents
Join the Bainbridge High School Students Against Sexual Assault Club (SASA) and the Port Townsend Film Festival in welcoming Emily Lindin and her award-winning documentary film, "UnSlut," to Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, 550 Winslow Way E. A moderated discussion about bullying, sexual assault and gendered discrimination will follow the screening. The Port Townsend Film Festival screened UnSlut at its 2016 Festival in September, hosting Lindin for four days of screenings, all-school assemblies and discussions at Peninsula College and local high schools, according to PTFF Executive Director Janette Force.Lindin is founder of The UnSlut Project, an online community where survivors of sexual bullying and slut shaming share their stories, and where girls who are currently suffering find support and solidarity. The Project was inspired by her own experiences. When she was 11 years old, she was labeled a slut by classmates and bullied at school, after school and online.Lindin uses personal story sharing as a means to work against sexual bullying and slut-shaming in our schools, communities, media, and culture. These shared stories not only provide hope and solidarity to girls who are currently suffering - they demonstrate to us all just how widespread the issues of sexual bullying and "slut" shaming really are, she says.A Harvard graduate, author and recent PhD., Lindin began The UnSlut Project by blogging her own middle school diaries. This led to an online community, book, film and personal appearances throughout the world. Now living in Southern California, Lindin is Teen Vogues sexual wellness columnist and has been featured on ABC, CNN, The Doctors and others.Both events are supported by Bainbridge Youth Services, a local nonprofit that offers free and confidential mental health counseling, career and tutoring services to teens.

Summary: This exceptional film noir portrait of corruption and morally-compromised obsessions stars Welles as Hank Quinlan, a crooked police chief who frames a Mexican youth as part of an intricate criminal plot. Charlton Heston plays an honorable Mexican narcotics investigator who clashes with the bigoted Quinlan after probing into his dark past. A memorable supporting cast including Janet Leigh as Heston's inquisitive wife, Akim Tamiroff as a seedy underworld leader, Zsa Zsa Gabor and Marlene Dietrich as an enigmatic gypsy complete this fascinating drama engulfed in haunting cinematography and a magnificently eerie score by Henry Mancini.

Beautifully rendered yet nicely understated, this historical bio-pic set in 1914 features a French painter of limited intellect and worldly experience who created magnificent works of art in honor of the angels, using her own homemade paints. Discovered in her mid-40’s as a lowly house cleaner by a famous German art collector, Seraphine’s future might seem assured, but world events will intervene. Starring Yolande Moreau, the movie features Seraphine’s actual paintings, so seeing this on the big screen is an enormous privilege.

This film follows her as she prepares for what may be the most important moment of her life: a major retrospective at MoMA. By the end of the film, it becomes apparent that Marina is, quite simply, one of the most compelling artists of our time - and promises a lively post-film discussion.

From the director of RUSSIAN ARK, Aleksandr Sokurov brings us a portrait of the Louvre as the film transforms into a magisterial, centuries-spanning reflection on the relation between art, culture and power. He touches upon those historical events which threatened cultural art: Napoleon, the Nazi invasion of France, and even today’s religious extremists. Blending archival footage, actor re-creation, and special effects, Sokurov crafts a cinematic ode to art. “This is one the most beautiful films of the year.” - Chicago Sun Times

The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames are widely regarded as one of America’s most important designers. Perhaps best remembered for their mid-century plywood and fiberglass furniture, the Eames Office also created a mind-bending variety of other products, from splints for wounded military during World War II, to photography, interiors, multi-media exhibits, graphics, games, films and toys. Their personal lives and influence on significant events in American life – from the development of modernism, to the rise of the computer age – is explored further in this documentary narrated by James Franco.

Coming of age dance/drama of 11-year-old Billy Elliot, who lives in a rough coal-mining village in Britain during the 1980’s when Margaret Thatcher was shutting down the mines, who trades his boxing lessons for ballet lessons unbeknownst to his father and older brother. Will they allow Billy to pursue his dream? As howlingly funny as it is touching, this one may well have us dancing during the post-film discussion. Directed by Stephen Daldry and co-starring Julie Walters, this was actor Jamie Bell’s cinematic debut.
