More From the Filmmaker
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. But 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 in POSSIBILITY 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.
