A brand new, powerful film that analyses the factors involved in rape and sexual assault cases. "Career prosecutor Anne Munch examines how societal attitudes influence legal cases involving sexual assault, and shows how rape cases frequently turn on the involvement of an 'unnamed conspirator' - the complex of myths and stories we tell ourselves as a culture about sex, gender, power, and responsibility." The film's focus on victim-blaming also explains some of the appalling commentary surrounding the tragic death of Jill Meagher. Wed Oct 31, 7pm. Red Rattler, Marrickville. Entry 50cents.

Professor Jane McAdam, UNSW, considers the impact of climate change on populations. Predictions are that some 250 million people may be displaced by climate change by 2050.
