PRIVATE VIOLENCE on HBO



Women Make Movies is thrilled to announce that 2015 New Release PRIVATE VIOLENCE will be broadcasting on HBO, Monday, October 20 at 9pm EST.

On Halloween night 2008, Deanna Walters and her two-year-old daughter, Martina, were herded into her estranged husband Robbie's 18-wheel truck. For the next four and a half days, Deanna endured a horrifying cross-country trip, suffering relentless brutality at his hands. Presented during Domestic Violence Awareness Month, PRIVATE VIOLENCE emphasizes the stigma domestic violence still carries for its victims - despite the fact that the most dangerous place for women in America is their own home: One in four women experiences violence there at the hands of an abusive husband or boyfriend every day. This timely documentary tells the stories of two women: Deanna, a victim turned survivor, and Kit Gruelle, a survivor who advocates for justice on behalf of Deanna and other battered women. More.

THE SUPREME PRICE

Director Joanna Lipper elegantly explores past and present in THE SUPREME PRICE as she tells the remarkable story of Hafsat Abiola, daughter of Nigeria's President M.K.O. Abiola who won a historic vote in 1993 that promised to end years of military dictatorship. Shortly after the election, Abiola was imprisoned and his victory annulled. His daughter, on the verge of graduating from Harvard, decided to return home and join her parents' struggle. The Abiola family's intimate story unfolds against the epic backdrop of Nigeria's evolution from independence in 1960 through present day as Hafsat continues to face the challenge of transforming a corrupt culture of governance into a democracy capable of serving Nigeria's most marginalized population: women.
