Ashley Judd
with Candelaria Silva

Bittersweet Humanitarianism

Friday, April 8, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
C. Walsh Theatre, Suffolk University
Almost a decade ago, Ashley Judd, walked away from a career as a sought-after, award-winning actress to answer her calling as a humanitarian. Having visited countless slums and brothels around the world in the last decade, Judd has captured stories of survival and resilience in extensive diaries, and now in her memoir, All That Is Bitter and Sweet. During this time, Judd’s journey compelled her to commit to in-patient treatment for her grief from childhood abandonment. Author and Roxbury Film Festival founder Candelaria Silva probes Judd’s experiences in feminist social justice work to discover the relationship between healing oneself and healing others.
