Latin American Film Festival: “Vicenta”

March 7, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

A film as necessary as it is beautiful, Vicenta explores the struggle for the right to a legal, safe, and free abortion. Through small clay figurines and live-action news clips, the documentary narrates the real human rights story of Vicenta, an illiterate working-class woman who cleans houses for a living. During a visit to the doctor, Vicenta discovered that her teenage daughter Laura, who is mentally and physically disabled, had been raped by her uncle and is now pregnant. The law is clear: Laura can have an abortion. But the system put all kinds of obstacles in her way to prevent her from exercising her right.
