IDA Documentary Screening Series presents ‘Belly of the Beast’


November 30, 2020 • 6:00 pm PST


The International Documentary Association (IDA) is bringing together both films and their creators to industry insiders and film enthusiasts from October to January. This year’s Screening Series takes place online and is accessible from anywhere in the world. Films are available on demand for IDA members exclusively. Post-film conversation live streams with filmmakers and subjects are open to the public for FREE.

When an unlikely duo discovers a pattern of illegal sterilizations in women’s prisons, they wage a near impossible battle against the Department of Corrections. Filmed over seven years with extraordinary access and intimate accounts from currently and formerly incarcerated people, BELLY OF THE BEAST exposes modern-day eugenics and reproductive injustice in California prisons.

Join Director/Producer Erika Cohn, Producer Angela Tucker, and Film Subjects Kelli Dillon and Cynthia Chandler for a digital conversation moderated by Kristen Lopez TV Editor at IndieWire. Closed-captioned and ASL interpreted.
