WIN FREE NEW ORLEANS FILM FESTIVAL TICKETS!
Metropolitan Center for Women and Children is partnering with the New Orleans Film Society to give a pair of tickets to the screenings of two films during the 2016 New Orleans Film Festival! The film will be Untouchable and Five Awake with screening times below. Untouchable is an in-depth exploration of the damage sex offenders wreak on their victims’ lives and their own, and Five Awake is an inspiring look at the tireless work of five women to pass critical domestic violence laws in Louisiana.
