In association with the Ewha University GSIS Student Council to mark 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence as well as Human Rights Day, Amnesty G48 presents “Heaven on Earth”. The film explores the theme of domestic violence, faced by many women around the world, head on.
From the film’s website: “When Chand arrives in Brampton, Ontario to meet her new husband, she leaves behind a loving family and supportive community. Now, in a new country, she finds herself living in a modest suburban home with seven other people and two part-time tenants. Inside the home, she is at the mercy of her husband’s temper, and her mother-in-law’s controlling behaviour.” 

The screening will be followed by an open discussion about gender-based violence and about ways we can recognise and prevent all forms of violence and discrimination against women in our daily lives. Lights snacks and refreshments will be kindly provided by the Ewha University GSIS Student Council. Everyone is welcome!
