Divergence Movie Night presents La Putain De Compile (Short films by or about sex work)
"Born in the early 1960s, the sex workers movement encompasses groups rooted in 5 continents. The organization of sex workers into a movement has enabled their emergence as subjects of their experiences, of their subjectivities, and of their voices. With short films hailing from Canada, France, USA and India, La Putain De Compile is an eye opening collection that presents alternative discourses and representations about sex work. Be it in traditional media, in feminist groups, or even in our daily lives, there is a need to give space to those most concerned -- sex workers!"
Doors 7pm, movie 7:30pm at Club SAW, 67 Nicholas
Free admission, $5 suggested donation.

July 28th, Ottawa:
Divergence Movie Night Scotch fundraiser
Our first major fundraising event is taking place on July 28th and will be an intimate scotch tasting event. With your ticket you will get to try 7 premium scotch whiskeys, each bottle costing an average of $100. It is a great opportunity to try some rare liquor that you might not typically invest in, and at the same time support a great cause.
Interested? Tickets are $50 and must be purchased in advance. Please contact Divergence.Movie.Night@gmail.com to arrange a purchase for you and your friends. This intimate event only has 24 tickets available, so it will be a casual and relaxing evening of sampling and conversation. Help support Divergence Movie Night, so we can continue to show queer documentary cinema for free in Ottawa!
The event is from 7pm to 11:30pm on July 28th, and will take place downtown near Preston Street and Somerset.
