Free Screening of Critically Acclaimed “Out of My Head” Documentary @ The City Library

Free Screening of Critically Acclaimed "Out of My Head" Documentary @ The City Library |  |  |

The filmmaker sets out to investigate the devastating migraine attacks that have her daughter in their grip, and decides to make a film about it. As mother and daughter seek understanding and ever-elusive treatment, we follow them into a bizarre and fascinating world populated by doctors, neuroscientists, other migraineurs, and such unexpected characters as Lewis Carroll, Sigmund Freud, and Joan Didion. We learn that, rather than a terrible headache, migraine is a complex, deeply stigmatized neurological disease afflicting nearly a billion people worldwide. This kaleidoscopic journey, told through interviews, cinema verite, art and animation, explores the history, impact, and raw emotion evoked by this unpredictable and confounding condition.

Following the screening, join us for an interactive Q & A with Dan Henry, M.D. and Dan Kaufmann, Ph.D. C.Ht.

Throwing Stones: Telling Stories of Resilience from Survivors of Sexual Assault @ Salt Lake City Public Library
Jun 28 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Throwing Stones: Telling Stories of Resilience from Survivors of Sexual Assault @ Salt Lake City Public Library |  |  |

An evening of sexual abuse awareness to premiere Utah documentary short film, GLASS TEMPLES, and will be joined by artistic performances in poetry and music, a filmmaker Q&A, and a panel discussion moderated by Kim Fischer

Art brings healing, and healing brings resilience. Local production company Vavani invites the Utah community to celebrate solidarity with survivors of sexual abuse as they voice their resilience through poetry, filmmaking, and song on the evening of June 28th. This free, open-to-the-public event will conclude with a panel discussion—moderated by ABC 4’s Kim Fischer—about the many ways that survivors’ stories can be told: personally, professionally, legally, therapeutically, and publicly.

The evening will begin on Thursday, June 28th at the Salt Lake City Main Library (210 E 400 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84111) at 6 p.m. with light refreshments and local resource tabling by Talk to a Survivor, Prevent Child Abuse Utah, Planned Parenthood, Students for Choice, Rape Recovery Center, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and more. Jasmine Despain, UCASA Student Advocate of the Year, will lead off the program with a poetry performance and will be followed by the Utah premiere of the documentary short film GLASS TEMPLES, by the filmmakers that brought us Sundance 2018’s QUIET HEROES, Amanda Stoddard and Jared Ruga. Both will be present with the profiled subjects of GLASS TEMPLES for a Q&A session following the screening. Local musician and founder of Billboard-charted Rigby Road Studios, Joel Pack, will perform an acoustic set. Kim Fischer will be joined for the panel discussion by Craig Vernon (childhood sex abuse attorney), Lindy Burton, LCSW (marriage and family therapist), Robert Gehrke (news columnist for the Pulitzer Prize-winning Salt Lake Tribune), and DeAnn Tilton (founder of local nonprofit Talk to a Survivor).

About the Film: When Kristy Johnson was 22 years old, she had a nervous breakdown, triggered by the surfacing of long-repressed memories of childhood sexual abuse by her father. After probing the issue with her family, she discovered that her two sisters had also been victims of their father’s “nighttime visits,” and that her mother and LDS Church officials were aware of the molestations. On a quest to discover why no one intervened during the decades of abuse that destroyed the lives of (at least) three little girls, Kristy, her sister (Kathy), and her brother (Kim), reconnected with their father, road-tripped to Utah, and confronted him about their tragic past—while the cameras rolled. Learn more at www.glasstemples.net.

Art Collaboration: In an effort to visually express resilience of sexual abuse survivors, we will be creating a community art installation by collecting hand-decorated stones from attendees, survivors and their allies. The stones will be displayed at Art Access during their Art Therapy for Survivors of Sexual Abuse/Assault exhibit that runs through July 8th. For full details, please visit www.glasstemples.net/throwing-stones.
