Can a government decide over the woman body? 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.

The Best Films For Action
Subscribe for $5/Month to Gain Access to These Great Films

Films For Action is a library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations. We don't accept any government or corporate funding, and the dozens of emails we get every week asking us to put ads or sponsored posts on the site just go in the trash bin. The Pay-Per-View films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patron subscribers, we partner with filmmakers to provide access to a growing number of films that are normally PPV. With just 26 highly-curated films at the moment, it's basically a mini "Netflix for world changers," but its main function is to support the library as a whole, which is 99% free and always will be.
