Calling All Men!

Please join Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter for a film screening of

Macho -  A film by Lucinda Broadbent|
Scotland/Nicaragua, 2000, 26 minutes, Color, DVD, Subtitled

“MACHO, a film by Lucinda Broadbent, provides an in-depth profile of Men Against Violence and its ground-breaking work towards eliminating attitudes of male chauvinism. The film strongly demonstrates that despite living in one of the most destitute countries in Latin America, this group has succeeded in providing a model that is used by men worldwide to discuss issues of violence and advocate for the rights of women”.

MACHO offers a rare glimpse at the methods used by Men Against Violence to discuss the abuse of power and the damage it causes families and communities. It also is a powerful film that demonstrates that violence against women and sexual abuse is a worldwide epidemic that needs to be addressed by all men in every country.
