AGORA
: Dragged from her chariot by a mob of fanatical vigilante Christian monks, the revered astronomer was stripped naked, skinned to her bones with sharp oyster shells, stoned and burned alive as possibly the first executed witch in history. A kind of purge that was apparently big business back then.

ALL OF US: Director Emily Abt

This is a documentary to inspire, to make us aware of the seriousness of the issue of HIV/Aids and the ill health in prisons and in the army to say we have had enough ineffective action. We all must get involved to save ourselves, to save the planet.

If this sounds like something you have heard before, it is and that is what makes this documentary noteworthy It is done in such a way that every woman who sees it can say yes, this has happened to me, I have been in a "compromising" position with a man, when I wanted to say no, when I did say no and yet, he prevailed.


There is something fundamentally wrong with how men and women relate to one another and that is a strong sub-plot of this film. it is not up to women to change but men must become the focus of effort-to-remedy for any change of note to take place.

Now is the time. It is always the time but Pureland films has given us new reason, new inspiration to renew our efforts.

the photography is outstanding and the editing is close to perfect. It is compelling, emotional and heart warming to know women can and do make films that make a difference

If you can't see it in the movies, rent the DVD or ask your librarian to get it for all to see, free of charge. Or you can support the cause by purchasing the DVD from the website
