"Turning A Corner": a new Chicago-based film about the sex trade

The film Turning A Corner will be screened on Tuesday, April 25th at 6 pm at the Chicago Temple, located at 77 W. Washington, in the main sanctuary. There will be a short Q&A following the film.

Turning A Corner is a one-hour documentary highlighting the voices of women involved in the sex trade and their efforts to raise public awareness and promote needed policy reforms. Created in a media activism workshop to address the issues in the women's lives, the film tells their stories of survival and triumph over homelessness, violence and discrimination and gives rare insights into Chicago's sex industry.
