Belly of the Beast (2020) Film Screening [FREE]
When a courageous young woman and a radical lawyer discover a pattern of illegal sterilizations in California’s women’s prisons, they wage a near-impossible battle against the Department of Corrections. With a growing team of investigators inside prison working with colleagues on the outside, they uncover a series of statewide crimes – from inadequate health care to sexual assault to coercive sterilizations – primarily targeting women of color. This shocking legal drama captured over 7-years features extraordinary access and intimate accounts from currently and formerly incarcerated people, demanding attention to a shameful and ongoing legacy of eugenics and reproductive injustice in the United States.
Join Defenders at Berkeley, Law Students of African Descent, La Alianza, and the Center on Reproductive Rights and Justice for an exclusive screening of Belly of the Beast.
March 29 – April 2, 2021
