Woman on Fire Free Screening – June 5

Please join us for a free screening of “Woman on Fire” on Monday, June 5th. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film’s subject, Brooke Guinan and director, Julie Sokolow

This portrait of courage under fire celebrates NYC’s first openly transgender firefighter. For Brooke Guinan, fighting fires runs in her blood – both her father and grandfather served in the FDNY. But as a transgender woman, her path to service has not been without obstacles. Transitioning from male to female in what is still an overwhelmingly macho profession proves a challenge for her coworkers and her family, while her boyfriend reckons with the impact of Brooke’s newly public profile on his parents.

The screening is free and begins at 7:30, but seating is limited, so please RSVP using this link. If you are not at the theater by 7:15, remaining tickets will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.
