Explore the intersection of politics and filmmaking with the directors of The Janes!
Film and TV are a pillar of American culture, and filmmakers can have a significant impact on shaping social views. The Janes, the critically acclaimed documentary about a group of outlaws providing abortions in Chicago before they were legalized, has had a timely release just months before the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.
Join Oscar-nominated filmmaker Tia Lessin and Emmy-nominated filmmaker Emma Pildes, the directors of The Janes, to learn how they shaped the storytelling around the history of reproductive rights, and to discuss the tangible impact that documentary filmmaking can have on culture and law.
