Join Film Fatales on Friday, June 24th at 2pm PT/5pm ET for a discussion about Reproductive Justice on Film with Cynthia Lowen (Battleground), Emma Pildes (The Janes), Tracy Droz Tragos (Abortion: Stories Women Tell) and Angela Tucker (Belly of the Beast).


With so many fundamental human rights currently under attack in this country, we’re gathering to listen, to learn and to take action. Join us for a conversation with documentary filmmakers who have been on the front lines of Reproductive Justice in the United States. We will hear what they’ve seen, what they’ve learned, how they feel about the current situation and what they, and we, as artists, can do now. And why we must continue to tell these stories. We look forward to holding space with you all to collectively work toward a more free and equitable society. With support from community partners Women Make Movies, New York Women in Film and Television, BVAC Media and rePro Film.
