In anticipation of the new adaptation of Margaret Atwood's infuriatingly prophetic piece of speculative fiction, the Women's Community Center of Central Texas's screening series Alt Girl Cinema presents this special 35mm show of the much forgotten theatrical film THE HANDMAID'S TALE.

In the not-so-distant future, strong-willed and beautiful Kate possesses a precious commodity that most women have lost and most men want to control: fertility. Forced into a brain-washing boot camp that turns fertile women into surrogate mothers for social-elite men and their infertile wives, Kate thinks she's made out well when she's assigned to an eminent partyleader. But when she learns that he's sterile, she's faced with the impossible choice: produce him an heir or die!
