Acclaimed director Jeanne Hallacy's Mother, Daughter, Sister is a new, award-winning documentary about one of today's gravest human rights crises. The film presents the stories of ethnic women affected by rape as a weapon of war in Myanmar (Burma). Told through the eyes of four Rohingya and Kachin women, Mother, Daughter, Sister shows the brutality of the Myanmar military, the resiliency of survivors and their quest for justice and accountability.

The film's producer Gregg Butensky will be present at the screening and will lead a post-screening Q & A with the audience. Join us!
