Protected Areas explores the reaction to the spanish government’s propose to modified to change the abortion law for part of women than see limited their rights. Also, with an analogy between the woman body and the public area, it’s proposes the metaphoric relation between both than struggle area for the politic and ideologic dominant powers in the actual spanish society.
“The fact that a bill on abortion is proposed in 2014 in Spain after certain vested rights on voluntary termination of pregnancy taken for granted makes us think that what is private is actually defined by what is public…. Turning back to such an important debate and call into question the vested rights on voluntary termination of pregnancy have a violent component to the extent that makes more precarious the existence of women, who obviously are affected, not only by the possible law, even by the debate itself.”
Protected Areas is a work of the spanish authors Victoria Herranz (Madrid, 1983) photojournalist, Jose Mansilla (Sevilla, 1974) anthropologist and David Cordero (Murcia, 1979) filmmaker.
