Description

WORLD PREMIERE There can be no real gender justice without an unpacking of the power structures surrounding the reproductive health industry complex—and of the choices that the market pushes on women. Abby Epstein’s latest documentary highlights the dark history of eugenics and underfunded research that the birth control pill, often heralded as a feminist turning point in the history of reproductive rights, hides within itself.  - Bedatri Choudhury

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with Director Abby Epstein, Executive Producer Ricki Lake, Editor Anne Alvergue and film subjects Joe Malone, Jennifer Block, Deirdre Cooper Owens and Gessie Thompson.

This screening is co-presented by NYWIFT.
