“Lake of Fire” Film Showing

Filmmaker Tony Kaye, best known for American History X, has been working on LAKE OF FIRE for the past fifteen years and has made a film that is unquestionably the definitive work on the subject of abortion. Shot in luminous black and white, which is in fact an endless palette of grays, the film has the perfect aesthetic for a subject where there can be no absolutes, no ‘right’ or ‘wrong.’ He gives equal time to both sides, covering arguments from either extremes of the spectrum, as well as those at the center, who acknowledge that, in the end, everyone is ‘right’ – or ‘wrong.’

Professor Mary-Jane Rubenstein will lead a discussion after the film. Sponsored by FemNet and Wesleyan Clinic Escorts.

ADVISORY: The film contains graphic images and language that may be upsetting to some viewers.

    I have trouble understanding the reasoning that gets us to abortion having no possible moral status whatsoever (unless, of course, you already think that “right” and “wrong” are silly ideas and deserve to be written in scarequotes). But hopefully I can make it to the screening and it will all become clear.
