Last night in the library “Radosav Ljumović” with the screening of “Whitney: Can I Be Me” by Nick Broomfield and Rudi Dolezal we opened the program In Focus organized third year in a row within the UnderhillFest. Opening words were given by the artistic director of UnderhillFest Vuk Perović and Tanja Markuš, coordinator of the program for culture and arts at Women’s Rights Center. After the film Ana Jaredić, WRC’s psychologist and Miro Minić, PR of UnderhillFest held a panel discussion on the topic of family and partner violence. Looking back at the film and life of world known pop diva Whitney Houston, Ana Jaredić gave explanations on the problematics of partner violence, its causes, dynamics and consequences on the victim. Through very dynamic interaction with the audience, many stereotypes were demystified which follow this phenomenon.
