To coincide with the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, CHF BC is screening the feature-length documentary Into the Light by Gentille M. Assih. Please join us on Thursday, December 16, 2021 to watch this inspiring film about women of African descent regaining power over their lives after experiencing domestic violence.
From the National Film Board’s description of the film:
Into the Light features the liberating life stories and powerful words of inspiring Quebec women of African origin who’ve regained control over their lives after suffering from domestic violence. The film transcends prejudice and breaks the silence, pulling back the curtain on a poorly understood, hidden world, while testifying to the tremendous power that comes from overcoming isolation and accepting one’s self. It’s a luminous dive into the quest for personal healing and universal humanity. This is Togo-born director Gentille M. Assih’s third documentary.
