PERSONHOOD

Directed by Jo Ardinger

A reproductive rights story that explores the growing system of laws that encourages the surveillance, policing, and criminalization of women during pregnancy. PERSONHOOD brings the human impact of these policies into the light through the story of Tammy Loertscher, a rural Wisconsin mother who was jailed after confiding to her doctor her occasional drug use before conception. Loertscher’s fetus was given an attorney, while Tammy was denied her constitutional rights and sent to jail. Recently unsealed court recordings provide a rare glimpse into these closed-door proceedings that have impacted thousands of American women.
