For Today

Seattle Premiere of 'Lost in the Fine Print'

The Alliance For Justice presents Lost in the Fine Print, a documentary about three people who found themselves trapped in the legal system. The movie examines the impact of forced arbitration, which robs individuals of the right to an impartial judge or jury. In fact, one study found that arbitrators rule for companies over consumers 94 percent of the time. 

Lost in the Fine Print urges us to challenge a system that violates anti-discrimination, consumer protection, and public health laws. Register in advance for a chance to view the documentary and hear U.S. Representative Suzan DelBene's keynote address. 

Seattle Premiere of 'Lost in the Fine Print', Tues, June 30, 6:45pm, Town Hall Seattle, 1119 Eighth Ave, Free with RSVP

For Wednesday

Nisid Hajari Talks 'The Deadly Legacy of India’s Partition'

Journalist Nisid Hajari visits Seattle to talk about Midnight’s Furies: The Deadly Legacy of India’s Partition, a timely account on how the Partition created both "physical and psychological borders" between India and Pakistan. 

The New York Review of Books called it “a superb and highly readable account of not just the mayhem, but the political machinations that preceded Partition.” Catch Hajari's gripping lecture and grab a copy of the book, which is for sale at Elliott Bay.

Back ‘Crave,’ Aneesh Sheth’s Original TV Series 

With actresses like Laverne Cox and award-winning shows like Transparent making waves transgender representation is on the rise. But Aneesh Sheth, who broke through as the first South Asian trans actress on TV in Outsourced, still believes her experience is underrepresented.

That’s why she’s producing her own Seattle-based original series, Crave, which with a Seattle cast and crew focuses on the lives of three people: Bobbi, a gay man stuck in an abusive relationship and a job he hates; Karen, a military housewife who finds her marriage crumbling after her husband’s return from a year away in Afghanistan; and Maggie, a trans actress trying to make her mark in show business. 

Sheth needs help to produce a full season—check out the pilot episode and help her raise $35,000 for a full season before July 6.

Back ‘Crave,’ Aneesh Sheth’s Original TV Series, Kickstarter available online through July 6
