Don't miss the Kentucky premiere of the documentary Beauty Bites Beast followed by Q&A with the film-maker and producer, Ellen Snortland! The documentary (http://beautybitesbeast.com/ ) concerns relationship violence and the lack of policy attention to empowerment or self-defense initiatives in the U.S. It also takes a global perspective, considering how relationship violence is responded to in other places, including Mexico, Israel, and sub-Saharan Africa. Be prepared to flip your ideas about female helplessness as women undertake the transformative experience of learning verbal, emotional and physical empowerment-based self-defense. “He had a knife; I had my hands. My hands won.” How often can you say with certainty that a movie saves lives? This one already has.
