JENNIFER FOX TALKS OF DE PALMA AS MENTOR - THE TALE
FOX WILL PARTICIPATE IN SPECIAL EVENT SCREENING FOR P.A.X.A. SATURDAY IN CHICAGO
http://www.angelfire.com/de/palma/jenniferfox.jpg

Jennifer Fox will participate in a special P.A.X.A. (Parents Against Child Sex Abuse) event Saturday (April 27th) in which her film, The Tale, will be screened at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago. Fox has previously spoken about Brian De Palma as a friend and also mentor on this specific film. In a new interview with Reel Chicago's Colin Costello ahead of Saturday's P.A.X.A. event, Fox is asked, "What was it like casting older and younger versions of you?"
Brian De Palma is a friend of mine and was a mentor to me on the film. He said, “You know Jennifer this is a casting nightmare. How are you going to audition two versions of everybody?” But, we had really great casting help with casting director Matthew Maisto. We also had Oren Moverman as a producer. So, we did the best we could in every circumstance.

Below is the event description and agenda for tomorrow morning:
Description

P.A.X.A. was approached by HBO's The Tale to support its grass roots efforts to leverage the film and raise awareness of child sex abuse. After watching the movie, our organization wants to share Director Jennifer Fox’s true life story to as many parents as possible. It shows how a pedophile uses emotional manipulation and grooming to lead his victim into thinking that she’s making choices to be in a sexual relationship with him. Be forewarned: there are explicit scenes of sex with a minor (filmed with an adult body double) that will elicit disgust. But a greater good is served: this movie is impactful because it portrays the perpetrator—not as a monster—but as a nice guy who earnestly wants a sexual relationship with a child. This is the most insidious and disturbing part of the film: you will never think of sexual predators the same way ever again.

Why Attend this Screening:

P.A.X.A. invites parents to attend the screening of HBO's the Tale as a way to gain better an understanding about:

The type of settings where a child may find himself/herself vulnerable and a target for sexual predators.
Tactics predators use to manipulate a child into sexual abuse.
Tactics predators use to groom the child's parents.

Note: This film is intended for an adult audience only. If you are survivor or survivor parent, this film may trigger PTSD.

The Tale's Writer/Director, Jennifer Fox, will participate in this screening

Program Agenda:
10:00am – 10:15am: Introduction to P.A.X.A. and HBO's the Tale
10:15am - 11:15am: Movie showing (first 60 minutes of the movie)
11:15am – 11:30am: Break
11:30am - 12:20pm: Movie showing (remaining 52 minutes of the movie)
12:20pm - 1:00pm: Panel Discussion + Open Q&A with Audience and Jennifer Fox
