RESCHEDULED TO NOVEMBER 18TH Movie Screening Link and Q&A with Director 8:00pm (virtual)

Director Jaret Martino, who is being honored with Recognizing (Y)Our Resilience Survivor Activist – Honorable Mention by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), has partnered with PWJC for an exclusive virtual Q&A session to discuss his experience and movie, Donna - Stronger Than Pretty. Based on his mother's life and personal experience finding a voice for herself and embarking on a journey, for herself and her children, away from domestic violence. The movie will be available to screen via a private link for one week prior to the Q&A session on November 18th hosted via Zoom. Virtual Q&A features Director Jaret Martino and lead actress Kate Amundsen.

As an artist, I create projects that make a difference in the world and shed light on subject matters deserving of more attention from society and the filmmaking community. In particular, I am compelled to tell stories where women are the heroes who save themselves. Donna is an empowering film about the journey of a woman finding her voice. Women often must fight for social and economic equality. This was my mother's reality and the inspiration of "Donna". - Jaret Martino

"Being recognized as a voice for victims and survivors as well as someone who is creating a culture where domestic violence is not tolerated. This brings me to tears and a myriad of emotions. It's a great reminder of my Mother's strength and determination and empowers me to continue to live in her reflection and help create change. It's not your fault and self-love was the most important message we wanted the audience to walk away with after watching our Feature Film, DONNA: Stronger Than Pretty. It truly keeps me going to know that my Mother's voice lives on through her Film and that she's helping create such important ripple effects" - Jaret Martino

Ticket is for single household viewing only.
