The Secret Society shines light on a hidden and unacknowledged women’s health crisis. Complicating the already stressful and stigmatized world of infertility, women who are unable to conceive because their eggs are no longer viable are forced to take their medical needs into their own hands only to discover that Canadian law criminalizes payment to anyone who wants to use an egg donor. These laws perpetuate the secrecy surrounding egg donation and create a bizarrely complex world of assisted reproduction in this country. Screening followed by a panel discussion with the director Rebecca Campbell, participants, and experts. Tickets are $10 – no Metro passes accepted. Watch Trailer
