*5 (Sunday): 10:00 AM— EARLY Bagel Brunch: Film and Talk
55 steps filmWe are pleased to screen the film "55 Steps" with a talk afterwards by attorney Collete Hughes, portrayed in the film by Hilary Swank. Hughes' work to defend the civil rights of mentally ill patients in psychiatric hospitals won a landmark decision right here in Northern California. Helena Bonham Carter portrays outspoken patient Eleanor RIese, whose call to Hughes began both an unusual relationship between the two women, and the beginning of a long legal fight. Come for the stimulation, and come hungry! Location: Albany COMMUNITY Center, Rms I & II. Donation: Members: $7.50, Public: $10. NOTE THAT WE ARE BEGINNING AT !0 AM.
