BDC Women’s Film Series: “Jackson” with Maisie Crow
September 2, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm UTC-4
The first screening of our 2nd Annual Women’s Film Series. The film series will showcase movies made by women filmmakers.
Q&A with director Maisie Crow
With a single abortion clinic remaining in the state of Mississippi, the city of Jackson has become ground zero in the nation’s battle over reproductive health-care.
Jackson The Film is an intimate portrait of the interwoven lives of three women in this town. Wrought with the racial and religious undertones of the Deep South, the lives of two women are deeply affected by the director of the local pro-life crisis pregnancy center and the movement she represents.
