CURRENT PROJECT:

MY SO-CALLED SELFISH LIFE

Watch the New Trailer

As a society, it's assumed that all women want children. Nothing could be more obvious. This in-progress documentary explores these long-standing assumptions about women, our bodies, and our choices. Join us to meet a group of renegade women who are questioning this most essential of female identities, and challenging a cultural narrative so enmeshed in the fabric of society, we're not even aware of its power over our lives.
