NYC PREMIERE When Latina immigrants checked into Los Angeles County hospital to give birth in the 1960s and ’70s, the last thing they expected was to leave sterilized. Was there informed consent, as the physicians who performed the procedures maintain, or was this part of an insidious, racially motivated plan to limit the population of an unwelcome minority? With the help of a hospital whistle-blower, a fearless young lawyer takes on the medical establishment to seek justice for these courageous women.

This screening is co-presented with Cinema Tropical.
