Possibility is a dreamlike exploration of two defining moments in a young couple’s life as they struggle with the decision to have an abortion.
About Siena Pinney
Siena Pinney is a writer/director/cinematographer based in Los Angeles, California. Named 2017’s Filmmaker to Watch by the Women Texas Film Festival, Siena strives to tell honest portrayals of women’s personal stories, big or small.
Ever since I started working on Possibility I’ve tried to avoid talking about it. It’s strange because I chose to tell a personal story and I chose to tell it for a reason. But, when people asked me what my film was about, I found myself dancing around the subject. I made this film because, deep down, I really do want to talk about it. Because when I had an abortion it was talking to other women about their abortions that made me feel like I was going to be okay. It inspired me to make a film that shared my own experience.
What you won’t find inPossibility is a strong political message on abortion. I see it as a personal issue that will always exist in a grey area and that grey area is what interests me. But I believe it’s essential that we DO talk about it, and I hope POSSIBILITY will inspire conversation and compassion on a personal level.
