THE QUIET REBEL (w/ Maintain Yourself short film) 
Saturday, March 16, 2019 at 2:00 PM
FEATURE DOCUMENTARY | 48 MIN | France
Directed by Carole Cassier
General Admission $10 | Student + Children $8

The Quiet Rebel, a documentary film by Carole Cassier, tells the extraordinary, controversial story of radical feminist Australian performance artist Casey Jenkins: her rise to internet fame--and shame.

Casey Jenkins did not expect to become an internet phenomenon in 2013 when she first performed Casting off my Womb. As a meditation on fertility, she knitted for 28 days with wool that she pulled out of her vagina in Darwin, Australia. A TV station featured a short clip of her performance. The clip soon went viral, totalling at 7.5 million views on YouTube, closely followed by a hurricane of negative, violent and sexist comments.
