This Sunday night at the Kilns is the first showing of the human rights documentary film on FGM that Beth Fischer and Benjamin Edwards shot when we were over in Uganda in February.
FGM stands for Female Genital Mutilation and is a horrible practice. The film was made to support a Ugandan Christian ministry called “Reach” that advocates for the abolishment of the practice and helps victims of abuse.
The issue has come before the Ugandan parliament and it is our hope that some of the MP’s (members of parliament) who worked with us will be able to use this to push through legislation against the practice.
The video is pretty hard core and viewer discretion is advised.
When: Sunday, September 27th at 7 p.m.
Where: The Kilns Bookstore (map)
What: A video and photography presentation with question and answer
* Below is a picture of a man they called “the elder” in the Kapchorwa region of Uganda that we were in who has long stood against FGM. The picture was taken in the cave where his family lived and hid during the reign of Idi Amin.
