‘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.
