About the Film:
Community partner: Susan B. Anthony Center at the University of Rochester
Working within a broken criminal justice system, a team of rebel heroines work to change the way women arrested for prostitution are prosecuted. With intimate camerawork that lingers on details and brings the Queens criminal courtroom to life, Blowin’ Up celebrates acts of steadfast defiance, even as it reveals the hurdles these women must face.
We'll have a Skype Q&A with Eliza Hook, a social worker featured in the film, following the March 12 screening.
