We're delighted to welcome Co-Director Maya Cueva to the screening on 4 November for an introduction and Q&A.

A vital document in a country where women’s reproductive rights are under siege, On The Divide zeros in on Whole Women’s Health, the last abortion clinic on the U.S./Mexican border. Maya Cueva’s film follows the story of three Latinx people living in McAllen, Texas. The clinic’s security guard, Rey, is a fervent Catholic; Denisse, a young mother of four, volunteers as a clinic escort; and Mercedes, an ex-gang member and mother is now part of the pro-life Church movement. Inspiringly, On the Divide shows how opposing views can be reconciled with connection and dialogue.
