February 13th: Private Violence

Private Violence
Private Violence is a documentary produced and directed by Cynthia Hill and Kit Gruelle. 

Private Violence is a feature-length documentary film and audience engagement campaign that explodes a simple, but deeply disturbing fact of American life: the most dangerous place for a woman in America is her own home. Every day in the US, at least four women are murdered by abusive (and often ex) partners. The knee-jerk response is to ask, "Why doesn't she just leave?" Private Violence shatters the brutality of this logic. Through the eyes of two survivors, we bear witness to the complicated and complex realities of intimate partner violence. As a victim transforms to survivor, Private Violence begins to shape powerful new questions that hold the potential to change our society: "Why does he abuse?", "Why do we turn away?", and "How do we begin to build a future without domestic violence?"

"The obstacles against effectively protecting battered women & prosecuting their abusers are vividly illustrated." ~ Dennis Harvey, Variety

March 13th: This Ain't No Mouse Music!

This Ain't No Mouse Music!
This Ain't No Mouse Music! is a documentary produced and directed by Chris Simon and Maureen Gosling. 

Roots music icon Chris Strachwitz is a detective of sounds, an archaeologist of deep American music, the antithesis of the corporate 'mouse music' that dominates the American ear. Born a German count, Strachwitz fled his homeland after WWII at 16. In the United States he discovered, and shared, a musical landscape that most Americans missed. For the last 50 years, he has carried his tape recorder from sharecrop shacks to roadside honkytonks, from cantina dives to wild Blues clubs. His recordings on his independent label, Arhoolie Records, introduced Cajun music from Louisiana, Tex-Mex from Texas, and Blues from the country into the living rooms of the world.

"One of the best music documentaries around...This film puts the heart and soul back into music and opens your mind to incredible artists you may never have heard of." ~ The Film Reel, Toronto

May 1: Resistance
Resistance is a documentary directed by Michael Graziano.

When scientists in the mid-20th century developed mass-produced antibiotics, it was a medical miracle. Only now are we realizing the potentially catastrophic implications of this innovation. Have we reached a point where we must save antibiotics in order to save ourselves? Resistance explores the global pandemic of antibiotic-resistant infection - what's causing it and what's being done to combat it.

Visit Resistance for more information about the film. 

The 2014-2015 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers is a program of South Arts. Southern Circuit screenings are funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
