Actions and Detail Panel
White Ribbon Day Film Screening
Fri. 25 November 2016, 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm AEDT
Please join us this White Ribbon Day to look beneath the surface of domestic and family violence and challenge the assumptions that pervade society.
Domestic and family violence is an insidious issue that affects one in three women in Australia. On average, one woman is killed every week at the hands of their partner.
The University of Newcastle is inviting our Newcastle community to attend the screening of the award-winning short film, Still Waters, and rethink domestic and family violence.
This event marks the first day of the 16 days of activism for the elimination of gender violence.
About Still Waters
Still Waters is a short film written and directed by UK filmmaker Timur Bernard. The film explores an oppressive relationship between a competing swimmer and her increasingly controlling husband.
The film was selected and awarded at the Monaco International Film Festival in 2013.
Director, Timur Bernard, will be at the screening and will draw upon personal reflections of his family’s experience and the influences behind making a film about domestic and family violence.
