Documentary Screening and Discussion “Amae, Thamee, Ama” (“Mother, Daughter, Sister)”
January 11 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The short documentary that will be screened on 11 January 2019 at 6PM at SEA Junction exposes the atrocity of using rape as a weapon of war.
The film revolves around the stories of four women from Myanmar: Shamima, a volunteer counselor working with rape survivors in the Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh, Dil Kayas, a teenage survivor and San Lung and Lu Ra, the sister and mother of two Kachin school teachers brutally raped and killed in 2015.
Powerful testimonies from survivors, witnesses and activists explore the far-reaching impact of sexual violence and trauma upon women and affected families and communities, and call for justice and an end to impunity.
Produced by Kirana Films in 2018, the documentary has toured the United States recently and will be having his premiere in Thailand on 10 January at FCCT and a day after at SEA Junction. . After the screening, there will be an informal Q & A session with the Director, Jeanne Marie Hallacy and human rights defender Debbie Stothard
