Today, March 13th, at 18:00h will be screened the movie “Self Defense”, followed by conversation. The event runs at the State Council of Women’s Rights (CEDIM), Rua Camelino 51, in downtown Rio.

The documentary tells stories of women victims of domestic violence who, in order to protect their lives, and in some cases that of their children, had to kill their partner.

The discussion will include director and writer Sara Stopazzollini, producer Leda Stopazzollini, Public Defender Dr. Glauce Maues and social worker Úrsula Francisco. The mediation will be by lawyer and researcher Natália Trindade.
