This week my guest is a Peabody and Emmy Award-winning director and producer, Erika Cohn. Her latest documentary film, The Belly of the Beast, uncovers a pattern of illegal sterilisations taking place in a woman’s prison in the USA. It exposes the thinking of the doctors who carried out these procedures, who literally believe they can play God and decide on the future fate of women which will affect the rest of their lives and violates their human rights.
The film is available in the UK as part of the 2021 HRWFF (18-26 March).
