Artwork for documentary film "Battleground" by Cynthia Lowen

This June, the Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade, ending 50 years of constitutional protections for abortion in the United States. Directed by Cynthia Lowen, “Battleground” shows how anti-abortion activists worked to get Roe overturned and how pro-choice activists work to maintain safe and legal access to abortion services.

Lowen is also the director and producer of ‘Netizens,’ a feature documentary about women and online harassment and ‘Bully’ following five kids and families through a year in the life of America’s bullying crisis.

Battleground” will be in theaters beginning October 7 and will be shown at Proctors in Schenectady, New York on October 11.
