An Evening with Filmmaker Renee Tajima-Peña: No Más Bebés Por Vida

dir. Renee Tajima-Peña, US, 2013, digital, 76 min. (work-in-progress)

Co-sponsored by Cinema Studies, Asian American Studies, and Greenfield Intercultural Center at the University of Pennsylvania

Please join award-winning documentarian Renee Tajima-Peña (Who Killed Vincent Chin, Calavera Highway) as she talks about her films. Her work-in-progress No Más Bebés Por Vida uncovers the contested history of sterilizations of Mexican American women during the 1960s and ‘70s, and how a group of mothers, young lawyers and activists, and a whistle-blowing doctor stood up in the name of justice.

Award-winning film director and producer Renee Tajima-Peña’s works address Asian American and immigrant/diaspora themes. Her films have screened at the Cannes, Sundance, and Toronto film festivals. She is a Professor of Asian American Studies and the Alumni and Friends of Japanese American Ancestry Endowed Chair at UCLA, where she directs the Center for EthnoCommunications.
