Domestic Violence Explored in Documentary Film Screening and Discussion at Suffolk Community College Oct. 20.

A screening of a feature- length documentary exploring domestic violence will be followed by a discussion and question and answer session led by a representative from VIBS Family Violence and Rape Crisis Center at Suffolk County Community College’s Eastern Campus on Monday, October 20 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The screening and discussion will take place in the Shinnecock Building, room 101.
 
Private Violence is a feature-length documentary film and audience engagement campaign that explores a simple, but deeply disturbing fact of American life: the most dangerous place for a woman in America is her own home.
 
Each day in the US, at least four women are murdered by abusive (and often, ex) partners. The knee-jerk response is to ask: “why doesn’t she just leave?”
 
Private Violence explores domestic violence through the eyes of two survivors – Deanna Walters, a mother who seeks justice for the crimes committed against her at the hands of her estranged husband, and Kit Gruelle, an advocate who seeks justice for all women.
