EVE HOSTS Post-Screening Discussion of TIBET IN SONG in NYC
Tickets are available for a special 5:00PM screening of TIBET IN SONG followed by a discussion with V-Day Founder/Artistic Director Eve Ensler, this Sunday, October 3rd at the Cinema Village, NYC.
TIBET IN SONG is both a celebration of traditional Tibetan folk music and a harrowing journey into the past fifty years of cultural repression inside Chinese controlled Tibet. Ngawang Choephel, a former Tibetan political prisoner, weaves a story of beauty, pain, brutality and resilience, introducing Tibet to the world in a way never before seen on film.
Tickets are available online and at the box office, including reduced priced tickets for students and seniors.

NEW V-Men Column: "A Brother's Story" by Kevin Knight
Today, we offer the newest installment of V-Day's ongoing V-Men Column, curated by author, activist and V-Men Creative Director Mark Matousek. Kevin Knight, born in Albany, NY, is a husband, community activist and actor living in Los Angeles, CA. He has a degree in Management and Technology and an MBA in Health Systems Administration:

As I got into the minivan I could sense the spirit of grief in their faces. "What? Did Minu die?" I asked innocently. One sister laughed at the irony and then began to cry. It wasn't our family cat that passed away. "No, it's your sister Carol. She was murdered," my mom answered.
