Triad residents have an opportunity to get an early look at the documentary [Trapped] in advance of its June run on the PBS series Independent Lens and before the Supreme Court gets ready to hear an important case related to abortion access.

The film looks at restrictive laws enacted in several Southern states to try to close down abortion clinics. This film is an unabashed and powerful advocacy piece that effectively weaves together stories of several abortion providers with some of the legislative initiatives designed to curtail access to their services

See [Trapped] tonight – Tuesday, March 22 – at 8 p.m. at a/perture cinema in Winston-Salem. The screening will be followed by a brief panel discussion and a portion of all ticket sales will benefit Planned Parenthood.


For viewers who arrive early, they can see Across the Line, a short film, virtual reality experience before the film at 7:30. Across the Line puts the audience on the scene with anti-abortion extremists trying to intimidate patients seeking sexual and reproductive health care.
