At 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 14 join The Portico and the Florida Action Committee for this free documentary screening and post-film discussion. Prepare to experience this provocative look at a feature-length documentary film about this controversial Florida law.
About the film (from their website):
When the most powerful lobbyist in Florida discovers that the nanny has sexually abused his daughter, he harnesses his extraordinary political power to pass the toughest sex offender laws in the nation. UNTOUCHABLE chronicles his crusade, and its impact on the lives of several of the 800,000 people forced to live under the kinds of laws he has championed. The film interweaves intimate portraits of men and women who have been branded sex offenders with the heartbreaking stories of those who have suffered sexual abuse. It is a film that pushes viewers toward an uncomfortable place, requiring them to walk in the shoes of those who have survived sexual abuse, but to still bear witness to the experiences of those we revile.
About The Co-hosts (from their website):
The Florida Action Committee (FAC) intends to educate the media, public, and legislators with facts about sex offenders. FAC works to reform the SO laws and registry in Florida. FAC does not in any way condone sexual activity between adults and children, nor does it condone any sexual activity that would break laws in any state. FAC does not advocate lowering the age of consent, and have no affiliation with any group that does condone such activities.
Location: Second Floor of The Portico Connections Building | Cost: This event is FREE and open to the public. All are welcome. | Discussion: Facilitated discussion immediately following the film.
