Sundance documentary releases provocative poster about abortion rights
The new documentary, Trapped, highlights the TRAP laws that are limiting access to abortions in some states. We're sharing the poster with our readers before the film premieres at the Sundance Film Festival later this month.
Film director, Dawn Porter, describes her documentary this way, "Trapped interweaves the personal stories behind these regulatory battles: from the physician who crisscrosses the country assuring medical services are available; to the strong women and men who run the clinics; to the lawyers leading the legal charge to eliminate these laws; to the women they are all determined to help. In this feature length character driven film, our main characters fight alongside a dedicated cadre of attorneys to preserve abortion rights in a country living with the mistaken belief that Roe v. Wade still protects a woman's right to choose."
The poster for the film shows the image of the U.S. Capitol building inside a woman's body, suggesting that the government is trying to control and regulate our bodies.
Trapped premieres Jan. 24 at the Sundance Film Festival.
