“The Choice” is a powerful, thought-provoking short film that looks at abortion, a procedure that one in four women will have at least once over a lifetime. In this dramatic work of fiction, women speak collectively about their circumstances, their abortions, and the aftermath. The surprising array of emotions—ranging from regret to liberation—makes possible a new conversation about a procedure now mired in politics, shame and stigma. Watch “The Choice,” and you’ll never think about abortion the same way again.
Directed by Desiree Cooper and Oren Goldenberg (USA)
