Based on true events, HOLD ME DOWN depicts a day in the life of a 19-year-old single mother who works as a stripper at an illegal nightclub to support her child in the South Bronx. It is filmed in the locations where the events depicted occurred; in the Mott Haven Housing Projects and in an actual brothel, and features a cast of non-actors / women survivors of sexual exploitation and domestic violence. English subtitles. 30 minutes. Rated R.

Q&A with Director Niclas Gillis and actor Tanisha Lambright will follow the screening.
