Healix Collective is proud to present a summer screening partnership with The City Reliquary. Join us on June 29th at 7 PM for the first installment: a special screening of the documentary What I Want My Words To Do To You (2003) directed by Madeleine Gavin, Judith Katz, and Gary Sunshine.

What I Want My Words To Do To You offers an unprecedented look into the minds and hearts of the women inmates of New York’s Bedford Hills Correctional Facility. The film goes inside a writing workshop led by playwright Eve Ensler and consisting of 15 women, most of whom were convicted of murder. Through a series of exercises and discussions, the women, including former Weather Underground members Kathy Boudin and Judith Clark, delve into and expose their most terrifying realities as they grapple with the nature of their crimes and their own culpability. The film culminates in an emotionally charged prison performance of the women’s writing by acclaimed actors Mary Alice, Glenn Close, Hazelle Goodman, Rosie Perez and Marisa Tomei.

Runtime: 90 minutes. Guest speaker to follow.
