The second annual DocuFest kicks off today (8 March). DocuFest is a documentary film festival, that focuses on stories of conflict resolution. The films to be screened will cover topics ranging from domestic violence and access to education for young women to the Soviet gulags and rise of Nazism in Germany.
The first day of screenings will focus on International Women’s Day. The film Til Death Do Us Part will be screened. The film is focused on South Carolina, a state where more that 300 women die from domestic violence. The film was produced by the Dart Centre for Journalism of Columbia University. The film will be followed by a panel discussion that will feature representatives from the Cayman Islands Cancer Society, RCIPS, the filmmakers and more.
Other films to be screened at the festival include Confronting Amnesia: Frozen Memories of Russian Gulage, Beyond Belief, Nazi Law: Legally Blind, and What Tomorrow Brings. The festival will also include a number of Q&A’s with the filmmakers.
Proceeds from the festival will benefit the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre, the Zabuli School (a school for girls in Afghanistan featured in one of the films), and Rotary Club of Grand Cayman.
