Film Screening: Our Bodies Our Doctors at The Palm Springs Cultural Center
OUR BODIES OUR DOCTORS by filmmaker Jan Haaken tells the rarely-discussed story of what it means to be an abortion provider today: confronting threats of violence and facing intensified political threats and efforts to criminalize abortion. Religious control over health care is expanding, including in many pro-choice states. The abortion debate continues to be defined by gruesome images of the anti-abortion movement. In contrast, this film provides a crucial, hopeful point of view: an intimate glimpse into the lives of these courageous providers who have devoted their careers to ensuring women have access to skilled, compassionate care.The film features Portland-based providers, often unsung heroes, who have taken national leadership roles in the fight for women’s reproductive rights.
This screening is the film’s California premiere, and part of the 8th Annual American Documentary Film Festival (AmDocs). A portion of the proceeds from this screening will be donated to the local office of Planned Parenthood.
