‘ABORTION – THREE SHORT STORY FILMS HIGHLIGHTING THE ISSUE’ FOR NAKID MATINEE SUNDAY
In a historical reversal of women’s rights, the Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade effectively ending national abortion rights for women. To highlight this and the many stories that get lost in the noise, we have selected these short films to showcase a side of the story you may know, or you may not. The fight lives on in our vote now and remembers we are all people with individual stories, so let’s talk more and hate less. With all the emotion it’s easy to forget that these decision don’t just impact the now and here, they impact generations, reverberations through time.
So without further a do, this Sunday’s NAKID Matinee..
After traveling 200 miles, a young woman (Sarah Goldberg) waits out Texas’s state-mandated 24-hour waiting period before her abortion can proceed.
Winner of the Jury Prize for US Fiction at Sundance Film Festival. Created as part of Refinery29’s Shatterbox Anthology, a short form series spotlighting the voices of female filmmakers.
Abortion clinics in Texas are disappearing exponentially and healthcare providers are feeling the brunt. The Provider follows the story of abortion provider Dr. Shannon Carr who travels every week from New Mexico to Dallas in order to perform abortions despite restrictive laws and threats to her safety.
We are currently in production on a feature documentary about the community of McAllen, TX- home to the only abortion clinic in the Rio Grande Valley.

Across the Bay Area, illuminated windows reveal volunteers for Exhale, a hotline for people seeking help in processing their abortion experiences. In the still of night, these volunteers lend an ear to those who need it.
