A new documentary film by an award-winning Japanese filmmaker Kaori Sakagami, TALK BACK OUT LOUD unfolds stories of women with HIV/AIDS who were victims of life-long violence. These women became "Thrivers" from survivors through a process of creating a paly based on each of their own experience. The film features eight women belonging to The Medea Project: Theater for Incarcerated Women, an all-women amateur theater group which originated in the San Francisco jail.

After the movie, a talk event will be held in Japanese.
