Abortion Film Screenings with the Director!

See two groundbreaking feminist documentaries about abortion on an USA/Canada tour in August 2008! Both films are outstanding documents in their own right, but together provide an incredible evening of analysis and information about one of the most divisive issues of our time.

Abortion Democracy: Poland/South Africa (50 min, English and Polish with English Subtitles), directed by Sarah Diehl of Berlin, Germany, contrasts the differences in abortion policies in South Africa and Poland regarding abortion laws and their impact on the lives of women.

The Coat Hanger Project (50 minutes, English) directed by Angie Young, is about abortion and the current state of the pro-choice movement 35 years after Roe vs. Wade.

The Directors will be available afterwards for Q and A!
