Inclusion StatementWAIT aims to challenge the common stereotypes and stigmas around abortion. Our goal as storytellers is to depict the true face of abortion through characters that are diverse in age, race, social class, and gender. Additionally, the cast and crew is almost entirely female.
About The Project
Our story begins in the middle of an unspecified waiting room. It is filled with a sense of anticipation and the muffled sounds of protesters outside.
The camera becomes the vehichle for connection as we travel through the waiting room.
There is a sense of circumstantial unification and silent support among the strangers.
Our film investigates the stigma surrounding abortion - who has them and why.
Statistics show that one out of every three women under the age of 45 will have an abortion. It's time we opened up a healthy dialogue about pro-choice issues and strive for greater access to abortions that are safe, legal and affordable.
We understand that this is a sensitive topic and that's exactly why we're drawn to it. Everyone involved in our film is passionate about telling this story in the most honest and human way. Ultimately, abortion is not so much a political or religious issue as it is a human one.
