Academic Discussion and Screening of the Highly Acclaimed: The Price of Pleasure A film by Chyng Sun Master Educator at NYU http://photos-g.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs021.snc1/3062_625343764602_68133224_ In honor of National Sexual Assault Awareness Month Recently, the University of Maryland at College Park showed a porn film with much ado about free speech, but did not address the social and economic issues of pornography and the industry, as well as its impact on young people, relationships, and sexual violence. This is Montgomery College's chance to appropriately respond with intellectual criticism and academic inquiry. From the official synopsis: The film paints both a nuanced and complex portrait of how pleasure and pain, commerce and power, and liberty and responsibility are intertwined in the most intimate aspects of human relations. The film features interviews with scholars of mass media (Gail Dines and Robert Jensen), economics (Richard Wolff), and psychology (Dr. Ana Bridges); writers on pornography and popular culture (Ariel Levy and Pamela Paul); producers and performers from the pornography industry (John Stagliano, Joanna Angel and Ernest Greene); and a former stripper/porn performer-turned-author (Sarah Katherine Lewis). April 30 1:00-3:00 PM Student Activities Center (SAC) Rockville Campus, Montgomery College Discussion facilitated and moderated by Evin María Eldridge Student Organizer and Women's Studies Undergrad Presented by the MC Climbing Club; for more info email email@example.com
