Produced by: 
KBOO
Air date: 
Sun, 07/28/2013 - 12:00am
PDX Animator Qathi Hart talks about eugenics, women's reproductive rights, and serving in the Navy.

Host Ren Green interviews Pacific Northwest College of Art Animation student Qathi Hart about her short film, Torn, and her passion for raising awareness of women's reproductive rights through visual storytelling. Hart reveals why she believes we should still talk about Twentieth Century eugenics practices, discusses her military service, and what motivates her to be a political artist who crafts animation films.

For Ren Green's further analysis of the interview as a fellow trauma survivor, check out her blog.
