US Medical Support LLC and Thigh High Production LLC, in association with Advancement for Rural Kids, Inc present "Thy Womb" special screening for the benefit of typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda victims.
We are raising funds to help victims of the recent monster typhoon that hit the Philippines, which left hundreds of thousands displaced from their homes and millions in need of basic necessities like food and water.
Proceeds will go to Capiz, a province in Western Visayas that's in a State of emergency. With the help of Advancement for Rural Kids, Inc., they are providing emergency feeding and relief to kids and their communities in rural Capiz. ARK is all volunteer.
Brillante Mendoza's "Thy Womb" is listed among the contenders for the Best Foreign Film at the 2014 Golden Globes. This is a story of unconditional love about a Bajau midwife coping with both the cultural burden and gendered irony of her own infertility amid the deprivations of her gypsy community in Tawi-Tawi, Philippines.
A saga of island life stuck between the devil of passion and the deep blue sea of tradition.
The Screening Date will be on
December 1, 2013 at 12:00 noon to 3:00pm
