Mindful of the Future Speaker Series: Kimberly Bautista ’07

October 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Kimberly Bautista '07

“Healing from Sexual Violence Through Arts and Advocacy”

Kimberly Bautista, a Pitzer alum who majored in Media Studies, will be returning to campus on Thursday, October 19 as part of the Pitzer College Student Senate Mindful of the Future Speaker Series.  The topic of her talk will be “Healing from Sexual Trauma through Film and Advocacy.” This is an incredible opportunity for students (especially students of color, media studies students, and survivors of trauma) to meet Bautista and learn how she used her 5C education, study abroad experience, and passion for film to empower survivors of sexual violence.
Shortly after graduating Pitzer, Bautista produced and directed the documentary Justice for My Sister, which follows one Guatemalan woman during her three-year battle to hold her sister’s killer accountable. She encounters many obstacles: a police record that is missing, a judge who is accused of killing his own wife, and witnesses who are too afraid to testify. In the end, Rebeca emerges as a leader in her community with a message for others: justice is possible.
 
 An award-winning documentary, Justice for My Sister received the HBO-NALIP Documentary Filmmaker Award, Best Documentary at the Los Angeles Latino Independent Film Festival, and the Camera Justita Award at Movies That Matter Festival in The Netherlands.
