WORLD PREMIERE In an America where more and more women and trans people are losing legal bodily autonomy, the history of Bill Baird’s long fight for women’s right to abortion is as relevant as ever. Oscar-nominated filmmaker Rebecca Cammisa doesn’t just give us a portrait of Baird, but also creates a historical register of allyship and activism that those fighting to uphold freedom and choice can access, and perhaps emulate. - Bedatri D. Choudhury 

Co-presented by The New Republic.

The first and second screenings will be followed by a Q&A with director Rebecca Cammisa, subjects Bill Baird and Jada Portillo, and producers Walter Köhler and Sarah Noerenberg.
