Document Presents: FREE CeCe!

October 1, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:40 pm

Free – £8

On her way to the store with a group of friends, trans woman Chrishaun Reed “CeCe” McDonald was brutally attacked and in defending her life, a man was killed. After a coercive interrogation, CeCe was incarcerated in a men’s prison in Minnesota. An international campaign to free CeCe garnered significant support from media and activists, including actress Laverne Cox. Cox signed on as executive producer of FREE CeCe!, committed to exploring the role race, class, and gender played in the case. In the end, CeCe emerged not only as a survivor but also as a leader.

Followed by a discussion with Chryssy Hunter from Bent Bars Project, a letter writing scheme for LGBTQ+ people in prison in the UK. Presented in partnership with Document, Glasgow’s International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival.

ACCESS: Level access at entrance of CCA with lift up to first floor for Theatre space. Accessible toilets available. English language with English captions. BSL interpretation for discussion. Hearing loop.

Content note: discussion of violence.
