                ABOUT THE FILM:  "Sexual Revolution: 50 Years Since Humanae Vitae" is a beautifully-made documentary that examines the parallel developments of the Pill and modern Natural Family Planning (NFP) by telling the little-known story of the founding doctors, respectively, Dr. Gregory Pincus and Drs. John and Evelyn Billings. The centerpiece of the film is the dramatic life story of Alana Newman, a talented recording artist. Born through donor conception (via an anonymous sperm donor), Alana's youth is filled with natural curiosity about her biological father. As she gets older, however, this curiosity develops into a sense of abandonment and self-doubt. Still, a spark of that curiosity inspires her on to an arduous search for truth, beauty, and goodness—and her father. Eventually, Alana discovers the treasures of Theology of the Body, Humanae Vitae, and all the riches of the Catholic Church, and comes to realize that she, in fact, may never have been fatherless. "Sexual Revolution: 50 Years Since Humanae Vitae" has been endorsed by The Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization.


                Following the film there will be a panel discussion, with local people speaking to their experience of NFP.
