The premier of Shelter, a short concert film by Jon Bowermaster, includes performances by Natalie Merchant and Simi Stone, creating a balance between vocal performances and testimony readings by local women affected by domestic violence. The performances are drawn from a benefit concert performed by Merchant and others last June at Bard College to benefit local women’s shelters. The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion with local politicians and women’s advocates. The free event, part of One Billion Rising, takes place Friday, February 14 at 9:30am at Old Dutch Church on Wall Street, Kingston. Donations can be made to the Washbourne House and Grace Smith House. (845) 383-1361.
