About this Event

The Australian Human Rights Institute invites you to the launch of Human Rights Defender Issue 28:3 Special Issue on Gender-Based Violence.

Our guest speaker is Heather Nancarrow, CEO Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS).

This launch will be followed by the Australian Human Rights Institute and Documentary Australia Foundation Human Rights and Documentary series.

The final documentary in this series for 2019 is

GEETA

6pm-8pm

A separate ticket link to purchase tickets is below.

Geeta is the moving story of one woman’s attempts to create a better future for her daughters after they, along with Geeta, are the victims of a horrific acid attack at the hands of her husband.

In finding a community alongside other acid attack survivors, Geeta and her daughter Neetu find their voice and a sense of empowerment within the growing movement in India, fighting against gender-based violence.

But the story of Geeta is more than a portrait of a growing movement in India, it is also a portrait of a woman and her family as they too have to confront what it really means to create change.

Following the screening, there will be a Q&A and discussion. Panellists include:

  • Emma Macey Storch (Director, Geeta)
  • Jhuma Sen (Law Future of Change India Fellow at UNSW Sydney)
  • Elise Fernandez (Filmmaker, spoken word artist, survivor)
  • Jan Breckenridge (Co-Convenor, Gendered Violence Research Network, UNSW)

Some of the material in the film may be distressing to some viewers.
