Screening of Five Awake

Sun Jan 12 | 2 pm, Baxter Hall

A free screening of the documentary Five Awake will be held at St. Mark’s at 2:00 pm on Sunday, January 12, in Baxter Hall. “Five Louisiana women, outraged over husbands shooting their wives, set out to strengthen domestic violence laws, including a controversial proposal to restrict the gun rights of domestic abusers. This is the story of what happens when women, armed with passion, determination and political savvy, wake up and refuse to take no for an answer.”

Co-producer and director Donna Dees-Thomases will participate in a post-film discussion and Q&A. The film is available as part of a new film series sponsored by 20 gun violence prevention organizations and local churches. Contact Cecilia Monahan for more information.
