Trailer (Youtube)

Sat, Oct 17, 7:00 pm, SSCB Lecture Hall
Cost: Free

Speaker: Anya Ezhevskaya, Advocate with Free the Captives

Very powerful, deeply moving and excellently humanizes the underground sex slave trade. Especially timely and appropriate for this area considering that Houston TX is the major hub for sex trafficking in the US. After his 13-year-old sister is abducted by sex traffickers, a determined Mexican teen travels from the barrios of Mexico City to a run-down stash house in New Jersey in a desperate attempt to rescue her.

Tomlinson Hill

Trailer (Youtube)

Sat, Oct 24, 7:00 pm, SSCB Lecture Hall
Cost: Free

Speaker: Chris Tomlinson, business columnist for the Houston Chronicle and former foreign correspondent. Book signing after the film.

In the mid-1800s, just outside of Marlin, Texas, a slave plantation named Tomlinson Hill was founded by James K. Tomlinson. This plantation would have long lasting effects on the rural community. Tomlinson Hill documents how the legacy of slavery in east and central Texas has created a region still divided despite the civil rights changes of the last 60 years.

Two descendants of the plantation owner, one white, one black, return to their roots to discover their hometown still entrenched in the legacy of slavery. One explores the past to reconcile the sins of his grandfathers, and the other explores the hope of an integrated future.

Winner of the Dallas International Film festival Silver Heart Award.
