Free Documentary Film Screening of Silent Beauty


Free Documentary Film Screening of Silent Beauty

Uptown Campus

When director Jasmin Mara López sees a photo of her niece with her grandfather, she is flooded by painful memories of her own childhood sexual abuse at his hands—and the following 24 years of her silence. Through archival family footage and intimate moments in the present, Silent Beauty confronts painful truths while revealing the beauty one can feel when they reach the other side of grief. Join us for a screening of this cinematically striking and poetic documentary and a revelatory conversation with Jasmin after the show.

Warning: This film and discussion includes descriptions of sexual abuse. Support for audience members will be provided on-site during the event.

Sponsored by Digital Media Practices at Tulane, Tulane Title IX (all in), and New Orleans Family Justice Center.
