Description

“Dr. Carla Cerrato’s bravery cannot be underestimated.” (filmmakers Kahn and Zeka)

Because of Nicaragua’s 2007 total ban on abortion, an Ob-Gyn at a Managua public hospital confronts a terrible choice: Should she provide care she believes will save her patients’ lives, or follow the law? Named one of the films not to miss at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival, A Quiet Inquisition offers a compelling example of what prohibition looks like on the ground through the eyes of the medical professional. Holen Kahn/Alessandra Zeka. 2014. 65 m. NR. USA, Spanish with subtitles. N/A.

Q&A Nov. 23, 6:00: filmmaker and former JBFC educator Holen Sabrina Kahn, via Skype
