Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 7:00pm • Ragle Hall, Serkin Center
Screening and panel discussion
Break the Silence features raw, powerful, intimate interviews with 18 southern Vermont women about their personal, sexual, and reproductive health histories. Vermont women from diverse backgrounds candidly recount their histories of sex ed, early sexual experiences, abortion, birth control, relationships, gender transition, menstruation, STIs, gynecological exams, sexual assault, pregnancy, pleasure, and much more. Break the Silence challenges social taboo with unflinching candor, courageous vulnerability, and often great humor. Directed, shot and edited by Marlboro alumna Willow O’Feral. Produced by Haptic Pictures and the Women’s Action Team. The film will be followed by a panel discussion featuring women from the film. Please note this film does use strong language and talk about sex, so it may not be suitable for all audiences.
