Gaslight: Screening and Discussion at AFI Silver Theatre

The recent buzzword “gaslighting” describes abuse that manipulates a victim into losing their sense of reality. The classic film Gaslight tells the story of a domestic violence victim (Ingrid Bergman) whose partner (Charles Boyer) gaslights her—with terrifying consequences.

Join us at AFI Theater in Silver Spring on October 8th at 12:30PM for a screening of the film, followed by an expert panel discussion. Resources from local service providers will be available in the lobby. Please click here for details and tickets.
