Now in its third year, the Talking Pictures Festival celebrates independent films from around the world mixed with brand new offerings by local filmmakers. The festival will take place April 14 – 17, 2011.
This year the Festival is proud to present two inspiring documentaries that confront head-on the issues of sexual and domestic violence – TRUST: Second Acts in Young Lives, about the way art transforms a sexual abuse survivor’s life at Chicago’s Albany Park Theater Project, and Sin By Silence, which documents a group of incarcerated women advocating against domestic violence.
Another film titled “Concrete, Steel, and Paint” focuses on how restorative justice can be used to build bridges between prisoners and community members.
More information about these films, as well as others in the Festival, can be found at here.
