Friday, October 19, 2018 at 7pm screening “Game Girls”
– directed by Alina Skrzeszewska – 90 min.
Production Films de Force Majeure (FR)
Q&A with Alina Skrzeszewska, producer Kelly Parker, story advisor William Shepherd, main character Teri Rogers and the women who participated in the workshops.
Game Girls follows Teri and her girlfriend Tiahna as they navigate their relationship through the chaotic world of Los Angeles’ Skid Row, aka the “homeless capital of the U.S.” A dilemma fuels the tension between the two women: while Tiahna seems comfortable being a player in the underground economy of Skid Row, Teri is driven by a powerful desire to get out. Together with other women from the neighborhood, they attend a weekly Expressive Arts workshop where they are looking to reflect, dream, and heal. Can their love survive the violence of their past and their current environment?
