Synopsis by Cara Saposnik
Made in partnership with pioneer filmmaker Albert Maysles, this documentary is an intimate exploration of the human drama involved in this heated debate. Focusing on both the historical, and above all, the personal, this documentary reveals the painful decisions behind the political discourse. From illegal back alley abortions to the angry picket lines of recent years, Abortion: Despertate Choices illuminates the human experience which quite often gets lost in the shuffle.
