Join KUED and the Salt Lake Film Society for an advanced look at episode one of the final season of Poldark on Masterpiece. 

The Poldarks look forward to life together in peace, but a plea from Ross’ old Army Colonel, Ned Despard, compels him to the capital to help. As Demelza manages their affairs in Cornwall she encounters disenchantment and a new opponent.

VESSEL Q&A on 6/21

Broadway
Friday 6/21
7:00 pm
Q&A with dir. Diana Whitten & Planned Parenthood following the film 

Vessel begins with a young doctor who lived by the sea, and an unlikely idea.  Rebecca Gomperts, horrified by the realities created by anti-abortion law around the world, felt compelled to challenge this.  Her method: to provide abortions on a ship in offshore waters.

Her project, Women on Waves, begins as flawed spectacle, a media frenzy, faced with governmental, religious, and military blockades.  But with each setback comes a more refined mission, until Rebecca has the revelation that she can use new technologies to bypass law – and train women to give themselves safe abortions using WHO-sanctioned protocols with pills.

We witness the creation of an underground network of emboldened, informed activists, working at the cutting edge of global reproductive rights, who trust women to handle abortion themselves. Vessel is Rebecca’s story: one of a woman who heard and answered a calling, and transformed a wildly improbable idea into a global movement.

This film is screening as part of The Greatest 2019 series.  Get the entire lineup and schedule here

About Tyler Measom:

A skilled producer, Measom has assembled projects large and small. Having traveled the globe with productions, he knows how to get a crew into customs and out of jail. He is also a talented cinematographer who is adept at making pretty footage while pretentiously pointing at things, a trait learned from reading American Cinematographer Magazine.

Measom's creativity, hard work and knowledge of the industry makes him an ideal candidate for directing, producing or book signings (bring your own book). Measom lives in the lovely hamlet of Salt Lake under the shade of a large oak tree.  

About Jennilyn Merten:

Jennilyn Merten is a partner in Left Turn Films, whose current production, Sons of Perdition, has just been picked up by the BBC.  Jenni has directed and edited mini-documentaries for Deseret Book, and been the creative director/writer of commercial campaigns for Novell, Check City, and an episode of the Reality T.V. show HomeTeam.
