We are working on producing a new feature documentary about the history of forced sterilization with a focus on women of color in the US. Since the 1950's and up into the late 70's men and women with low IQ's to those with developmental disabilities to native and immigrant women who were deemed as "undesirables" in the US were sterilized without their consent. They were sterilized in institutions that included mental and correctional facilities and coerced to signing away their right to give birth.
The documentary which is in its research phase will enter production in 2021 and serve as a testament to the injustice of the US medical and correctional institutions and the negative legacy that has left. Specifically, the documentary will feature interviews from survivors and their families who reside in the US.
