The Center for the Study of Women in Society’s Social Sciences Feminist Network research interest group will offer a public screening of the film Sista in the Brotherhood on Friday, March 11, 2016, from 7 pm to 9 pm in Lawrence 177 on the University of Oregon campus.
Director Dawn Jones Redstone and producer Roberta Hunte will both attend the screening and be present afterward for a Q&A discussion.
Sista in the Brotherhood is a 20 minute dramatic short film about a tradeswoman named Laneice. “The story tracks a black, apprentice carpenter struggling to prove herself on her first day at a new job site. An outlier in a white, male-dominated workforce, she’s forced to navigate the crew’s reactions to her. When tensions rise, she receives inspiration from a surprising source to help her decide to either make a stand or risk never being recognized as the skilled worker she has become.”
