Screening: "Birth Story"

Date

Dec 4, 2012
06:00 PM

Description

Screening:

70-year-old Ina May Gaskin and her colleagues began delivering each other’s babies in 1970, on a caravan of hippie school buses, headed to a patch of rural Tennessee land. The women taught themselves midwifery from the ground up, and, with their families and spiritual leader Stephen Gaskin, founded an entirely communal, agricultural society called The Farm. With archival footage, modern vérité, and interviews, Birth Story captures their unique community—from its heyday into the present–and it tells the story of charismatic midwife and counterculture heroine Ina May.Followed by live Skype Q&A with the filmmakers.
