Hidden Tears Project co-founder Jordan Marinov will perform at a screening of the film Equal Means Equal on Friday, August 25th, 2017. The event will take place at La Plaza de Cultura y Artes, located at 501 N. Main St., Los Angeles, and will run from 6:30 PM to 9 PM. There will be a Q & A after the screening.
Marinov will dance an excerpt from the Shades of Red project, and two dancers will also perform a section from Unseen Dances. Both Shades of Red and Unseen Dances are media projects produced by the Hidden Tears Project to raise awareness about human trafficking, sexual abuse and gender inequality.
The dance performances will directly precede a screening of Equal Means Equal, a feature length documentary film directed by Kamala Lopez and released through Heroica Films. It details the history of the Equal Rights Amendment and makes a compelling case for the urgency of ratification. Through interviews, graphics and some disturbing statistics, the film chronicles how women’s social, economic and political agency have been eroded over the last few decades, with very disturbing consequences not just for women, but for society at large.
“The film weaves multiple seemingly disparate issues together to make the case that a lack of full legal equality is having a profound impact on American women’s lives.”
Equal Means Equal will spearhead a national campaign to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment in the 14 remaining states that still need to sign on.
