Reading for Tuesday 29th June 2010

what we'll be reading at this meet up, which will be a film this time!

We thought it would be interesting to watch a film this time.

I’ve spotted a film that looks good I think called Warrior Marks, although I’ve never seen it. It seems slightly difficult to get hold of so I’ll bring a copy along and we can watch it together and then discuss it. Its just under an hour long and we thought it would be nice to make a bit of an evening of it and all bring a little bit of food to share. The 1in12’s cafe is a meat free space, please only bring vegetarian foods. So we’ll meet at 6pm-ish and start the film at 6.30pm.

The subject of the film is female genital mutilation (FGM), you can read a bit more about the film here;
