Friday Night Film Series: Reversing Roe
(dir. Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg, 2018, 99 min)
As reproductive rights grow more embattled, award-winning filmmakers Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern trace the legacy of the 1973 Supreme Court’s landmark Roe v. Wade decision. Reversing Roe provides a clear and accessible overview of more than fifthy years of the social and legal history of abortion rights in the United States. One surprising revelation is how much abortion rights were supported by Republicans in the 1960s. This Emmy-nominated documentary “reminds us that the more women get involved regarding their rights, the more likely we’re to see a fair, principled fight” (Los Angeles Times).
