Recent press for ‘Remembering Anarcha’

The Washington Post included Remembering Anarcha in their “new movies to stream this week.”

The Alabama Institute for Social Justice talked about the film in their blog “The Power of Truth-telling and Remembrance.”

The Montgomery Advertiser discusses the film in an article about the director: “Josh Carples breaking hearts in music & film; documentary ‘Remembering Anarcha’ out May 4.”

And the Capital City Free Press talks about the film in “Montgomery-made documentary “Remembering Anarcha” set for May 4 release.”

‘Remembering Anarcha’ documentary available for pre-order

Remembering Anarcha, a documentary that explores the controversial history of Dr. James Marion Sims and the enslaved African women that were the subjects of his experiments, is available for pre-order through the iTunes store.

Much of the film takes place in Alabama, specifically in Montgomery where Sims conducted experimental surgeries on Anarcha, Lucy, Betsey and about a dozen other women in the late 1840s.

Known as “the father of modern gynecology,” Sims is celebrated with statues at the Alabama State Capitol in Montgomery, the statehouse grounds in Columbia, SC, and previously in New York City’s Central Park. The New York statue was removed in April 2018 due to his controversial legacy of experimenting on enslaved women without anesthesia.

“My producers and I felt this story was important and timely, and we hope it helps to shed more light on the strength and humanity of Anarcha, Lucy, Betsey, and the other women who endured these surgical experiments,” said Josh Carples, the film’s director.

Gravitas Ventures, a Red Arrow Studios company, is distributing the film in North American markets.

“Filmmaker Josh Carples has powerfully illuminated a little known story in the dark cannon of the legacies of slavery by focusing on the forgotten, rather than the prominent. By doing so he has given a voice to three women, long thought lost to history, and recognized them for their bravery, humanity and impact on modern medicine,” said Gravitas Ventures Acquisitions Coordinator Megan Huggins.

Remembering Anarcha is set to release on-demand on May 4. Pre-order the film here.

‘Remembering Anarcha’ official trailer

A statue of Dr. James Marion Sims stands on the grounds of the Alabama State Capitol in Montgomery. The South Carolinian spent almost two decades in Montgomery, pre-Civil War, practicing medicine. Sims is known as “the father of modern gynecology,” but his detractors call him “Father Butcher” for his experiments on enslaved women – without anesthesia or what is now “informed consent.” His legacy – and the statues dedicated to him in Montgomery, Columbia, SC, and until its removal in early 2018, New York City’s Central Park – only tell part of the story. “Remembering Anarcha” explores this history and issues of ethics, race, and the lingering effects on modern society and medicine.

From Terrible Master Films in association with 803 Films and Carolyn Jean’s Son Visions. Produced by Josh Carples, C. DeWayne Cunningham, and Royce Williams. Directed by Josh Carples.
