Jackson: Movies That Matter Monday

November 6, 2017, 7:00pm - November 27, 2017, 8:30pm

Join us at the Underground Cinema by WVIFF for November's Movie That Matter Mondays film: Jackson About the film: Abortion remains legal in the United States but anti-abortion efforts have succeeded in making it virtually inaccessible in some places and in the Deep South, often unthinkable. At one time Mississippi had fourteen abortion clinics. Now only one remains. Since the passage of Roe v. Wade more than four decades ago, the self-labeled “pro-life” movement has won significant cultural, political and legal battles. Now, the stigma of abortion is prolific in Mississippi and women in poverty and women of color are particularly vulnerable. Jackson is wrought with the racial and religious undertones of the Deep South and explores the nuanced nature of abortion in America’s Bible Belt. Shannon Brewer is the director of Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the only remaining abortion clinic in the state. Barbara Beaver runs the Center for Pregnancy Choices and is a leader of the anti-abortion movement in Mississippi. April Jackson is a young mother of four children faced with another unplanned pregnancy. Jackson is an intimate, unprecedented look at the lives of three women caught up in the complex issues surrounding abortion access. Set against the backdrop of the fight to close the last abortion clinic in Mississippi, Jackson captures the essential and hard truth of the lives at the center of the debate over reproductive healthcare in America. About the series: WVIFF Underground Cinema Presents Movies That Matter Mondays - Each month, we will work with a community organization to show an issue-oriented and compelling film relating to their mission. At the first screening of the film, the community organization will participate in a discussion with the audience. The film will show for the rest of the month on Mondays. About the community partners: Founded in 1989, WV FREE is a reproductive health, rights, and justice organization that works every day for West Virginia women and families to improve education on reproductive options, increase access to affordable birth control, reduce teen pregnancy, improve adolescent health, and protect personal decision-making, including the decision of whether or when to have a child. What the Critics are saying: “Easily one of the year's strongest documentaries...” -Criterion Cast “...Elegant, unsettling...” -Village Voice “This well-crafted film adds to our understanding by humanizing some of the opponents.” -The Hollywood Reporter “A devastating account of a broken commons, the movie reveals just how much the road to hell is paved with the best of intentions” -Filmmaker Magazine “The religious (and most likely Republican) are out to hunt Mississippi’s seemingly most vulnerable prey: poor women of color, who for whatever personal reasons are attempting to end their pregnancies the safest way possible.” -VIBE
