The Unmentionables Film Festival: The Stranger Within - Fibroid Stories
Sunday, June 14th, 2:00pm

The Unmentionables Film Festival
Vol. 1: Menstruation

(The Unmentionables Film Festival is an annual theme-based festival that will focus on a different "taboo" topic each year. The inaugural Unmentionables Film Festival invites audiences to participate in a public discourse and celebration of all things menstrual.)

2:00pm
The Stranger Within: Fibroid Stories
Directed by Roderick Giles & PaSean Wilson-Ashley, USA, 2015
(Screening an excerpt from this work-in-progress)
In The Stranger Within: Fibroid Stories, Beverly Johnson, Rhonda Ross, PaSean Wilson-Ashley, and other women share their personal fibroid stories. The film also explores the varied treatment options, and sheds light on the medical establishment's practice of performing far too many unnecessary hysterectomies for fibroid tumors.  This program will include a dynamic panel discussion with the film's directors, Dr. Millicent Comrie, and Queen Afua.

Red Tent Market Place

The Red Tent is traditionally a sacred place for women to gather and be supported by each other, as they experience menses and childbirth.  Our Red Tent Marketplace will honor the essence of the Red Tent, by creating a celebratory community event that will explore the wondrous world of menstruation.  All are invited and encouraged to peruse the marketplace and interact with vendors, educators, healing practitioners, and organizations, who will offer information about menstrual-related products, practices, and services.
