CineCulture: Judged Bodies: The Fight for Reproductive Rights (2023)

Discussants: Mariana Carbajal (Director) & Morena Herrera (featured in the film) 

Between 2000 and 2011, 128 women were prosecuted for abortion or aggravated homicide in El Salvador, a nation that has some of the strictest abortion laws. These laws have been criticized by human rights organizations. Mariana Carbajal, an Argentinian pioneering writer and journalist on gender issues, traveled to El Salvador to interview Evelyn and other victims of the fierce social condemnation and state violence against women.  Many poor women have been sentenced to long prison terms after facing obstetric emergencies. Carbajal also profiles Morena Herrera and other activists who fight for women’s reproductive rights. In Spanish with English subtitles. 69 minutes.
