She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

“The Long Night” Screening

When: Friday, Feb 27th at 7:00 PM
Where: Keystone Congregational, 5019 Keystone Place N.
Cost: Free/donation

After winning the Inaugural Women’s Initiative Photography Grant from the Alexia Foundation, Tim Matsui set out to document grassroots efforts to address domestic minor sex trafficking in the Seattle area. As he worked, the story grew and access deepened, allowing him to create more than a photo story.

The Long Night is a feature documentary film produced in partnership with MediaStorm. It gives voice and meaning to the crisis of minors who are forced and coerced into the American sex trade. The film weaves together the stories of seven people whose lives have been forever changed by this issue.

The Long Night is not themed to advocate a solution. Instead, it submerges the viewer in the experience of what it has been like for Natalie and Lisa to survive in the life; for Tom and Nacole to watch their daughter slip out of their hands; for Andy and his fellow police officers, Brian and Joel, to try and create a more just system.

The Long Night is testimony to the lives of those who have lived this crisis.

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
