My grandmother had a stillbirth in the 1930's and as a result she was segregated and institutionalised. She was given intense shock therapy and medical treatment and she died before I could meet her.
I was given her manuscript of this period of her life, which inspired me to write a short film following the journey of a young woman after the loss of her stillborn child.
Supporting this film means supporting all those families and women who have lost their newborns but it also means encouraging powerful female narratives through the medium of film.
Stillbirth is a tragedy which impacts so many families and the topic is often left unspoken. I want to break the silence with this film to encourage discussions and raise awareness about stillbirth so bereaved parents feel less isolated.
You will be able to see our teaser on the link below. I hope it touches your heart. If you can contribute in anyway possible we would be forever grateful.
Thank you for your time.
Silent treatment - son
Caught in the act - neighbours
How to say it - 'no'
