“La Operación”

Monday, Mar 31 7:00p
Civic Media Center Gainesville, FL

“La Operación” (1982) Ana María García created this forty-minute documentary to highlight the social policy of female sterilization in Puerto Rico. This island has the highest rate of sterilization in the world. Over one-third of its women have undergone what is commonly referred to as “La operación” (The Operation). García incorporates interviews with working-class and middle-class women of various backgrounds who have undergone this procedure.
