KUED will host a preview of the new Frontline/Independent Television Service documentary, Kind Hearted Woman, followed by a panel discussion on Wednesday, November 14 at 7:00 p.m. at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, 20 S. West Temple.
Kind Hearted Woman, directed by David Sutherland, offers a portrait into the struggle of a Native American Woman who is caught between saving her family and helping her Indian community and abused women. Sutherland follows Robin Charboneau’s life over the course of three years and reveals a culture both ancient and modern, as well as a life both endangered and bursting with potential.
Following a 20-minute preview from the film, KUED will engage four panelists to weigh in on the topic. Panelists are: Deana Ned, an assistant professor and lecturer in the University of Utah College of Social Work; Angie Makomenaw, the Violence Against Women coordinator for the University of Utah; Anna Cutler, a member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe; and Keri E. Jones, chief program officer of the Salt Lake City YWCA.
The screening and panel are part of KUED’s Women and Girls Lead initiative, a strategic media campaign to support and sustain a growing movement to empower women, their communities, and future generations. Women and Girls Lead is made possible in part by American Express, B.W. Bastian Foundation and the Salt Lake Tribune.
