August 18, 2014 Asheville, NC – Our VOICE, Inc. in partnership with the Fine Arts Theatre are proud to present a special screening of the documentary film “Anita” on Thursday, August 28th at 7pm at the Fine Arts Theatre. The film highlights the experiences of Anita Hill, now a Professor of Law at Brandeis University, who sparked a national conversation on sexual harassment by speaking out against her harasser.
Directed by Academy Award winner Freida Mock, the film expertly weaves together in-depth interviews with footage of the hearings to bring viewers back to a time when those who spoke out against sexual harassment were not just discredited but often vilified. To view the trailer for the film click here. The screening takes place one week before Our VOICE’s 40th Anniversary Celebration, 40 Years of Starting Conversations on September 4th at the Diana Wortham Theatre where Ms. Anita Hill will be the keynote speaker.
Tickets for the film are $10 and will be available at the theatre box office. For more information, please visit www.fineartstheatre.com. Tickets for the 40th Anniversary Celebration are currently on sale, and can be purchased at Our VOICE, Malaprop’s and aSHEville Museum, and are expected to sell quickly.
