Maggie Hadleigh-West's incendiary direct cinema documentary, WAR ZONE, is a battle cry for anyone who's been harassed, catcalled, and assaulted while rightfully claiming their slice of public space. Twenty years ago, West videotaped herself and other women in cities across America as they idly walked down the street. The zip codes may change, but not the trash on the sidewalks: an unending array of men openly propositioning these women, commenting on their appearances and trying to cut them down to size. Camera in hand, West returned fire, confronting them about their wonton disrespect and forcing them to explain their disgusting behavior. The results are cathartic, at times terrifying, and enraging above all.

In 2010, non-profit advocacy group Hollaback! began encouraging targets of street harassment to document their assailants with an even handier weapon - their mobile phones. The ensuing six years have seen a dramatic expansion of the Hollaback! mission, with organizations in 79 cities across 26 countries worldwide. Screening with WAR ZONE are two short films inspired by this call for action. STOP and MICHELLE'S STORY share the same crucial message: MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS.

On September 8th, there will be a special intermission Q&A and discussion with Hollaback Co-Founder/Executive Director Emily May, about what we can do to end this perverse - and pervasive - epidemic.
