Transpontine: Festival of Choice Film Night in New Cross

Transpontine: Festival of Choice Film Night in New Cross

The Festival of Choice 1 is a week of events in London aiming ‘to raise awareness of threats to reproductive rights and the plight of those in countries around the world who do not have access to safe and legal abortion. The Festival also wishes to celebrate solidarity and activism and to strengthen and support the pro-choice message, locally and globally’. On Saturday 26th September, there’s an evening of films and discussions at Goldsmiths in New Cross (in the Stuart Hall building from 6 pm). ‘Their laws, our lives’ 2 will feature ‘A quiet Inquisition’, which ‘follows a doctor in Nicaragua, a country where the draconian abortion does not allow abortion in any circumstance.

After the screening, we will have the intervention of one of the directors of this documentary’.

This will be followed by ‘My Choice, the Freedom Train’, a documentary that ‘looks at the successful campaign by thousands of activists who stopped the reform that threatened to severely restrict the access to abortion in Spain in 2014’.
