Opening Night: Reproductive Rights Film Festival

Friday, November 8, 2019

7–9:30 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

In response to recent legislation, this two-day festival presents feature films that investigate and explore the various facets of the fight for reproductive rights. Award-winning filmmakers come together to present these works, along with talkbacks and introductions.

On opening night, directors Ricki Stern and Anne Sundberg introduce their film Reversing Roe (2018, 99 min.), which investigates, through interviews with reproductive rights advocates and opponents, the long-term political campaign to overturn Roe v. Wade. After the film, reproductive justice organizer Senti Sojwal, Planned Parenthood of New York City, moderates a conversation among Stern and Sundberg; Dr. Liza Fuentes, Senior Research Scientist at the Guttmacher Institute; and Nancy Northup, President of the Center for Reproductive Rights.

Tickets are $16 and include Museum general admission (purchase tickets for Pierre Cardin separately). Member tickets are $14. Not a Member? Join today!
