Film: "THE BAREFOOT ARTIST"
(83 min, Glenn HolstenDaniel Traub, 2014)
With the Subject of the Film: LILY YEH - via SKYPE

PLUS: Special Seattle-Based Panelists: (who also harness the power of art to open hearts, build bridges of understanding and heal):

Lily Yeh orchestrates community-based art projects in some of the most troubled places in the world, transforming lives, including her own. Her efforts are inspired by a belief that art is a human right and that artists can create a foundation for profound social change. A visually stunning and deeply emotional film, THE BAREFOOT ARTIST chronicles Lily Yeh’s remarkable journey as an artist, from her first exposure to Chinese landscape painting as a young girl in China to the hauntingly beautiful memorial she designed to honor the victims of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda where she taught survivors of violent conflict to create murals and build sculptures drawn from their own experience.
The film illustrates her methodology for community building, using art as a foundation, which has evolved over decades while she has worked in impoverished and traumatized communities, kindling hope and a sense of purpose worldwide.

.
Vessel begins with a young doctor who lived by the sea, and an unlikely idea.  Rebecca Gomperts, horrified by the realities created by anti-abortion law around the world, felt compelled to challenge this.  Her method: to provide abortions on a ship in offshore waters.
Her project, Women on Waves, begins as flawed spectacle, a media frenzy, faced with governmental, religious, and military blockades.  But with each setback comes a more refined mission, until Rebecca has the revelation that she can use new technologies to bypass law – and train women to give themselves safe abortions using WHO-sanctioned protocols with pills.
We witness the creation of an underground network of emboldened, informed activists, working at the cutting edge of global reproductive rights, who trust women to handle abortion themselves. Vessel is Rebecca’s story: one of a woman who heard and answered a calling, and transformed a wildly improbable idea into a global movement.
