Self-Determination Inside/Out

Interference Archive presents Self-Determination Inside/Out, a comprehensive exhibition and public program series featuring the cultural materials produced by incarcerated people and their allies.

Film screening: Out in the Night

Saturday November 15, 2014
Screening & discussion 5 pm-7:30pm
Closing party to follow

Join director blair dorosh-walther and nd Terrain Dandridge, Patreese Johnson, and Renata Hill of the New Jersey 4 for a screening of Out in the Night.

Out in the Night is a documentary that tells the story of a group of young friends, African American lesbians from Newark, who were out one night in 2006, in the gay friendly West Village in New York City, when they were violently and sexually threatened by a man on the street. They defended themselves and were charged and convicted in the courts, and smeared by the media as a ‘Gang of Killer Lesbians’. Come hear how the NJ 4’s courage and resistance challenges the misogyny, racism, and homophobia of society and the (in)justice system, and sheds light on who is granted the right to self-defense.

Closing party for the exhibition Self-Determination Inside/Out to follow the screening!
