Minding the Gap

Thursday, October 11, 2018 7:00 PM FREE
(Bing Liu, 2018, USA, DCP, 100 min.)

Three young men bond together to escape volatile families in their Rust Belt hometown.  
As they face adult responsibilities, unexpected revelations threaten their decade-long friendship.

Call Her Ganda

Friday, November 30, 2018 7:00 PM FREE
(PJ Raval, 2018, USA/Philippines, DCP, 98 min.)

This documentary examines the 2014 murder of Jennifer Laude, a transgender Filipina woman killed by an American Marine, and the struggle for justice waged by her family, friends, lawyers, and investigative journalist Meredith Talusan. Confronting homophobia, colonialism, and the unjust laws of jurisdiction enjoyed by American armed forces in the Philippines, Call Her Ganda tells a powerful story with ingenuity and compassion.

Director PJ Raval will be in attendance and will be joined in conversation after the screening with a representative from GABRIELA National Alliance of Women and Julian Glover, from NU’s Gender & Sexuality Studies program.

Co-presented by the Block Museum with the Northwestern University MFA in Documentary Media, the Northwestern University Women’s Center, Northwestern University Gender & Sexuality Studies program, the Northwestern Asian American Studies Program, and GABRIELA National Alliance of Women.

Admission for this screening will be on a first come, first served basis. We suggest arriving early.
