CHICAGO— The work of Chicago-based African American lesbian poet and spoken word artist e. nina jay is featured in the new film Body of Rooms, based on her book of the same name.

This is a powerful, dramatic exhibition of an artist, a camera and the raw words and emotions of a Black woman navigating the U.S. during a time of #metoo, systemic violence, sexism, homophobic and racism.

e. nina jay uses poetry as a tool of survival and to break silences around all forms of violence against girls and women, with particular focus on the intersections of race, sexuality and poverty. As a survivor of incest and rape, e. nina jay believes women and girls can create powerful community to fight against the violence and constant degradation that weaves itself into every facet of our lives, by breaking silences and unraveling shame.

The DVD is 98 minutes and available for $20 + $4 shipping through Paypal: www.paypal.me/eninajay . A portion of the sales of the DVDs will go to Affinity Community Services.

A sneak peek of the film, and sales of the first DVD's, will be held Thursday, Dec. 21, 7 p.m. at Affinity Community Services, during the monthly W.O.M.B. Poetry event, 2850 S. Wabash Ave. #108 ( around the back of the building, free parking ), Chicago.

The film was directed by Tracy Baim, publisher of Windy City Times. Steve Maxey of Maxey MediaWorks was cinematographer and editor. Sound Engineer was Jeff Tudor, makeup and hair Kiana Smith. For more information, email eninajay@gmail.com or see www.facebook.com/bodyofrooms/ .
