Come to Film Screening of “Bitter Melon” #DVBitterMelon2019

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month

ALA invites you to come watch a movie with us for Domestic Violence Awareness month.   We are excited to host screenings of  BITTER MELON, by filmmaker H.P. Mendoza.  BITTER MELON is a  “home for the holidays” dark comedy/drama born from Mendoza’s experiences with toxic masculinity, bullying, homophobia, and the cycle of violence he saw in his own  family.  It’s a mixed bag that we hope will provoke, entertain, and generate discussions about the complexities surrounding the issues of abuse.  [Recommended for Adult Viewers due to explicit language and mature themes.]
