Sappho's Fire Screening at NESA – Sponsored by The History Project
Tuesday, June 19, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM (EDT)
The History Project and New England School of Acupuncture present a screening of Alexia Kosmider's Sappho's Fire, a documentary honoring the lives and loves of eight New England women who have boldly resisted the dictates of society. Through probing interviews, single and coupled women of diverse backgrounds (and their adult children) share their strategies and philosophies as they confront issues of aging unique to LGBT people.
A reception featuring wine and light hors d'oeuvres will precede the 7:00 screening of the film, which lasts approximately 90 minutes; the screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring the filmmaker and several individuals profiled in the film.
The $15 ticket price supports both the production costs associated with the film and the the efforts of The History Project, whose work focuses on documenting, preserving, and sharing the history of GLBT New Englanders with the public.
Participants will also receive a free gift certificate from the New England School of Acupuncture (NESA), redeemable for a free acupuncture treatment (a $40 value). New England School of Acupuncture (NESA) provides 21st-century health providers with comprehensive training in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine that is grounded in the principles of biomedicin.
Sappho's Fire is a production of the Shifting Visions Films Project, a nonprofilt film company whose work focuses on on exploring subjects that have been previously misrepresented or overlooked by larger film companies, and on creating educational documentaries that foster a greater sensitivity to contemporary social and cultural issues.
