Local film club Mise En Scenesters is kicking off their Frightening Ass Film Festival Saturday night, and they have offered $1 off of admission for SlutWalk participants. They will also be donating a portion of the proceeds to a local sexual assault crisis center.
Partnering with Ballyhoo Motion Pictures, MES will be screening the classic “Dark Night of the Scarecrow,” along with the world premier of making-of documentary “Bubba Didn’t Do It: 30 Years of Dark Night of the Scarecrow,” directed and produced by native filmmaker Daniel Griffith. The movie centers around a mentally disabled man who is wrongfully accused of sexual assault and subsequently murdered, shedding a light on intersections of ableism and sexual assault. Despite the subject matter, it is actually a relatively lighthearted, PG made-for-tv horror flick centered around the common tropes of revenge and post-mortem punishment.
If you want to attend, before or after the event come see me (Aria, with the lavender hair - hard to miss) and I will give you a stamp that will ensure your discounted admission! Cover is $4 for participants, $5 for everyone else - located in the Collective Clothing Warehouse in St. Elmo, there will be beer and other refreshments for sale.
Whatever you choose to do after SlutWalk, stay safe, have fun, and bring our message with you!
