The powerful and shocking documentary Amá (Navajo for Mother) from Lorna Tucker (Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist) exposes the forced sterilisation of thousands of Native American women by the USA Government.
Made alongside a group of incredible Native producers, consultants and the survivors themselves, Tucker travels across some of the loneliest parts of the USA meeting the brave survivors, doctors, politicians and whistle-blowers who have brought to light this horrifying scandal.
Amá uncovers the grotesque abuses of power in modern American history.
The film’s release has encouraged women to come forward to share their stories of being subjected to the violence of forced sterilisation suggesting that this abuse continues to persist in the U.S and around the world posing the question: when will this suffering end?
Director Lorna Tucker joins us for a post-screening Q&A.
This event took place on Thursday 31 January 2019 at Curzon Soho.
