"No Más Bebés," Synopses

Dir. Renee Tajima-Peña. USA, 79 min, 2015.

In 1960s and 70s, Los Angeles, Mexican immigrant women allege they were coercively sterilized without their consent at LAC + USC Medical Center. Archival footage of the booming Chicano rights movement is juxtaposed with interviews in a long abandoned hospital. Interwoven are opinions from both sides of the landmark case Madrigal v. Quilligan. The women who brought the case to trial are represented by a young and fearless lawyer, Antonia Hernandez. Academy Award®-nominated director Renee Tajima-Peña (Who Killed Vincent Chin) saved this important case from becoming a forgotten footnote in U.S history. Latino Public Broadcasting Showcase.

The San Diego Latino Film Festival is returning for its 23rd year, Media Arts Center San Diego’s prestigious and internationally recognized festival celebrates the best films by Latinos and/or about the Latino experience. At AMC Fashion Valley 18 (7037 Friars Rd.) and Media Arts Center’s very own Digital Gym CINEMA North Park (2921 El Cajon Blvd).
