Revisiting 9/11: 10 Years Later ~ Catherine Filloux’s play "Action Hero"

Oct 20, 2011 | 6:30 PM-9:00 PM

 Action Hero (working title) is the culmination of Catherine Filloux’s work of the past 20 years. It demands we bear witness to a justice system that is often indifferent to crimes of violence against women, where the gravity of these offenses is minimized, even unnoticed, and too often perpetrators go unprosecuted. The setting—from Guatemala and Haiti to the oil corporations and corporate law offices of the United States—touches on the universality of the injustices women worldwide must endure. The action, dialogue, and scenes portray the volatile situations caused by these oppressive conditions.

Post-performance talk-back with panelists: Catherine Filloux (Playwright), Jayne Huckerby, Research Director, Center for Human Rights and Global Justice, New York University Law Schoo), Marie Soto Cruz (Gallatin faculty), and Sharon Friedman (Gallatin faculty).
