Tonight's Show: Tribute to Jasmine Valentina and interview with feminist film maker

Tonight we pay tribute to feminist, artist, and all-around awesome lady, Jasmine Valentina. Jasmine was tragically killed in Brooklyn, NY a few weeks ago, and Calgary's arts and feminist communities have been mourning ever since. Tonight we look back on an interview we did with Jasmine last year, play some music from her fave bands, and remember how rad she was.

We will also interview local feminist film maker, Cara Mumford, about a screening of her film, December 6. Cara's film is described on her website:

December 6 is a short poetry dance film set to a spoken word
commentary by Evalyn Parry about societal and media responses to violence against women, with the 20th anniversary of the Montreal Massacre as the central focus. The film includes performances from 14 female dancers, showcasing a variety of world dance traditions, symbolizing that violence against women can happen to any woman, anywhere.
