Silence in the Courts

Eventbrite - Silence in the Courts

Bay Area Premier
Followed by Q&A with the filmmaker

Prasanna Vithanage’s (With You, Without You, SFISAFF 2013) thought-provoking film is a carefully crafted inditement of institutionalized forms of power, and documents how the elite can all too often put themselves above the law. Two women from rural Sri Lanka seek justice for being sexually abused by a judge while their husbands are in custody. Vithanage’s film chronicles journalist Victor Ivan’s efforts to leverage media support for these courageous women. While succinct in its form, the film cuts exceptionally deep in terms of its analysis of how patriarchy and power work together to infect the courts, the media and the lives of Sri Lanka’s most disenfranchised citizens.
