This March, St Margaret's House has planned an arts and wellbeing programme celebrating women in our community. As part of our diverse offering, Chapel Cinema is proud to present the outstanding documentary: Vessel.
We are also thrilled to welcome the London-Irish Abortion Rights Campaign to introduce the film, who will give a local perspective to this global issue.
Dr. Rebecca Gomperts sails a ship around the world, providing abortions at sea for women with no legal alternative. Her idea begins as flawed spectacle, faced with governmental, religious, and military blockade.
But with each roadblock comes a more refined mission, until Rebecca realizes she can use new technologies to bypass law – and train women to give themselves abortions using WHO-researched protocols with pills.
From there we witness her create an underground network of emboldened, informed activists who trust women to handle abortion themselves. Vessel is Rebecca’s story: one of a woman who hears and answers a calling, and transforms a wildly improbable idea into a global movement.
*We have limited space inside the venue, so make sure you buy your ticket in advance!
