Filmmakers Round Table

November 2, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Following the premier of the documentary “No Mas Bebes” at the Alamo Draft House Cinema on November the 1st in Austin, there will be a welcome reception and discussion with Academy Award®-nominated director Renee Tajima-Peña, producer/historian Virginia Espino, and some of the subjects featured in the documentary.

No Más Bebés (No More Babies) tells the story of a little known, but landmark moment in women’s history and the struggle for reproductive rights, a drama that unfolded four decades ago in Los Angeles. The film recounts how a small group of Mexican immigrant mothers and activists sued county doctors, the state, and the U.S. government after they were sterilized while giving birth at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center during the late 1960s and 1970s.
