Description

Join us for an Interwovxn screening of Periodical by director Lina Plioplyte! We will be hosting a night of film and discussion on Wed Aug 21 2024 at 6:00 PM at the Next Act Theatre.

We wish that all menstruators (and those who love menstruators) could see this film. It is done in a beautiful and fun way and challenges the stigmas around menstruation and menopause while shining a light on period poverty and the tampon tax (which 20 states including Wisconsin still charge).

"If we all suddenly start talking about menstruation, guess what? Our daughters won't have the stigma attached to it...We just need a critical mass of talkers, celebrators ... people who are loud about their tampon needs or their cramps or their PMS or, for God's sake, the menopause." ~ Filmmaker Lina Lyte Plioplyte

Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Milwaukee Diaper Mission’s Period Program.

Join us for a beverage (beverages will be available for purchase) before the film starts at 6:30pm. The film is 1 hour and 33 minutes and after the film, we will have a short panel discussion with Representative Robyn Vining (WI Assembly District 14), Dr. Emily Lombard (DO, Obstetrics/Gynecology), Nicole Dachs (Co-founder of Milwaukee Period Parties and Milwaukee Diaper Mission’s Period Program Volunteer), and Rebecca Jankowski (Co-Founder of Interwovxn and Licensed Reproductive Acupuncturist). 

Want to make it a night out? We are thrilled to partner with Bavette La Boucherie and Cafe Corazon who are offering a 20% discount on dining before and after the show.

Special thanks to Bay View Printing Company and Artery Ink for their sponsorship and support in helping us create the event posters!
