Human Rights Film Festival: ‘Scarlet Road’ with Discussion

| September 23, 2013

This year, the Webster University Year of International Human Rights Film Festival focuses on disability rights. The films take place on Thursday evenings in September in the Winifred Moore Auditorium. Admission is free and open to the public.

Scarlet Road

The fourth and final film of the series, Scarlet Road (2011, Women Make Movies) will screen on Sept. 26 at 7 p.m.

Scarlet Road is a documentary about the freedom of sexual expression. Rachel Wotton, an Australian sex worker, specializes in clients with disabilities. The documentary takes place in New South Wales where prostitution is legal. Wotton’s point of view is that human touch and sexual intimacy can be one of the most therapeutic aspects of life.

The film will be followed by an audience discussion with Stacey Henning, associate professor of Counseling.
