BEI BEI at DOCNYC
November 1, 2018
News from Incite Pictures – Cine Qua Non:
The documentary BEI BEI will have it’s NYC Festival Premiere at DOC NYC on November 12, Monday at 5 pm and November 13, Tuesday at 10:15 am in New York City. For info & tickets.
DOCNYC “Fight the Power Program describes BEI BEI as a High-stakes legal drama focuses on Bei Bei Shuai, a depressed, pregnant Chinese immigrant put on trial for the murder of her unborn child after attempting suicide. The case captivates the nation, and in particular the state of Indiana, where laws have set an under-reported legal precedent for women who terminate their pregnancies, whether intentionally or not. Bei Bei’s story shines a chilling light on the encroachment of women’s rights and the confluence of religious belief and medical practice.
Following the screening, we’ll be joined by Bei Bei Shuai and Linda Pence, coming in from Indianapolis, and Activists Lynn Paltrow and Miriam Yeung, who are working with us to launch the film.
After the screening, please join us at a party at Westbeth, 55 Bethune St., NYC Please R.S.V.P. to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The evening marks the film’s debut on the world stage and will be followed screenings at festivals in the U.S., in China, Korea and other international venues.
If you’re in town, we hope you’ll join us to celebrate this catalytic moment. If you plan to attend, do purchase tickets early as they are going swiftly. Please also feel free pass this invitation on to friends, colleagues and others in your community who may be interested in the film.
