Past Film Events: Between the Lines - May, 2011



About the Film:

'Between the Lines' is an award-winning  21-minute, visually lyrical, experimental documentary created by and about women who cut themselves. It explores the gray areas in women's relationships to their bodies in the context of deliberately self-inflicted injury and seeks to negotiate the fine line between self-destructive behavior and self-preserving coping mechanisms.
