Please join us for the

Reproductive Justice Film Festival

RJI Film Festival

April 1-5, 2016

The film festival brings together Sundance and Emmy award winning and Oscar-nominated directors and producers to showcase and premier films that directly address women's lives. Featured among these brilliant films are State v. Shuai, which tracks first degree murder charges filed against a pregnant woman who attempted suicide; Beautiful Sin, which tells the surprising, decade-long story of three couples struggling with infertility in Costa Rica who fight their government in an international human rights court for the right to use in vitro fertilization; and the director's rough cut of Misconception, a powerful forthcoming film that chronicles the dramatic rise in laws that restrict women's reproductive rights. Join us for these films and more. You will have the unique opportunity to meet and discuss these incredible works with the filmmakers.
