CIG Movie at Cinema to Explore Gender Violence

The Cayman Islands Government Wellness Committee will combine entertainment with gender violence education at its third annual movie night at the Camana Bay Cinema on Wednesday, June 28, with expected seating time at 6:15 p.m.

The event, which is free the public, will feature the gripping thriller, Alice, Darling, followed by a panel discussion.

Alice, Darling, released in 2022, highlights a woman’s journey to reclaim her strength and courage in the face of psychological and emotional abuse by her boyfriend. The film delves into the complexities of gender violence and its profound impact on individuals. Oscar nominee Anna Kendrick delivers a captivating performance as the lead character.

In line with its commitment to raise awareness and understanding of gender violence, the Wellness Committee has partnered with the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre to hold the panel discussion following the movie’s screening. The discussion will allow audience members to engage with distinguished experts from the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre and the Counselling Centre. The panellists will include Children and Youth Coordinator Livia Siqueira, Clinical Supervisor Jason Dunkley, Outreach Coordinator Mariesha Spencer and Relief Worker Jamara Bodden.

“Their insights and expertise will shed light on the issues surrounding gender violence, offering valuable information and guidance to those seeking support or wishing to learn more about the subject,” explained Wellness Committee member Kathleen Brown Gremli. “We also extend our gratitude to DART for generously sponsoring this event, enabling us to provide a powerful platform to address this critical issue.”

She continued, “Our first two Wellness Committee Movie Night events were well received, and we are thrilled to be able to bring this highly anticipated event again for civil servants and other members of the community.”

Patrons are requested to be seated by 6:15 p.m.
