To Mark International Women's Day and Honour Immigrant Women....

The lot of immigrant women is particularly hard, and to honour them as part of the International Women's Day celebrations, NDP Outremont is organizing another film forum for Monday March 11.

Family Motel, directed by Helene Klodawsky, will be shown, followed by a discussion with the participation of Chistine Paré,Co-président of NDP Section Quebec's Commission on Cultural Communities, member of la Fédération des Femmes du Québec (FFQ) and of the Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID)

In Family Motel a Somali refugee and her teenage daughters, confront the unexpected when they are evicted from their apartment for arrears in rent. The film follows their subsequent move to a beaten down motel for the homeless on the “other side” of town. A touching, thought-provoking  docu-drama.

Free admission, but contributions accepted.

Place. Café EM, 5718 Park Avenue, Mile EndTime: 7 p.m. Monday. March 11, 2013
