"Aftershock" Documentary Screening and Director Q&A

March 26, 2024
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Pulitzer Hall, 2950 Broadway, New York, NY 10027

Aftershock, made in partnership with ABC Studios and Hulu, digs into the shocking fact that more women die in the United States from preventable childbirth complications than in any other industrialized country, and that Black women die at three times the rate of white women. The film follows two Black families who are grappling with the grief of losing a loved one while seeking justice and medical accountability in the maternal health field.

After the screening, we’ll be joined by directors Tonya Lewis Lee and Paula Eiselt to go behind-the-scenes in the making of the film. Director of the Ira A. Lipman Center for Journalism and Civil and Human Rights/Associate Professor Robe Imbriano will moderate.

This event is co-sponsored by The duPont-Columbia Awards and the Ira A. Lipman Center for Journalism and Civil and Human Rights. 

This event is free and open to CUID holders only. Registration is required via Eventbrite. Pizza will be served.
