Post-screening discussion with Civia Tamarakin

Participants who commit to checking in with the FLiCX administrator by no later than 6:45pm, and to remaining through the post-screening discussion may RSVP on this page for tickets purchased by the Dean of Students office.

Since seating is limited, we must remind participants of the following:

  • that if you RSVP in the affirmative, and your plans change, you are expected to log back in and change your status to “not attending;”
  • that Vanderbilt participants must RSVP for themselves, and may not be “guests;” and
  • that non-Vanderbilt guests are limited to one per participant.

Birthright: A War Story is a feature length documentary that examines how women are being jailed, physically violated, and have become collateral damage in the aggressive campaign to take control of reproductive health care and to allow states, courts and religious doctrine to govern whether, when and how women will bear children. The documentary explores the accelerating gains of the crusade to control pregnant women and the fallout that is creating a public health crisis, turning pregnant women into criminals and challenging the constitutional protections of every woman in America. This is the real-life Handmaid’s Tale.
