Film Overview

Reflections from my mother after she and I marched together in 2004 at the March for Women’s Lives in Washington DC. It was the largest march in history – over a million people including families, mothers, fathers, grandparents and kids – all gathered to stand up for a woman’s right to choose. With appearances by Whoopi Goldberg, Patricia Ireland, Gloria Steinem, Bonnie Franklin, Ani DiFranco, Holly Near, Sandy Rapp, Sarah Weddington (the attorney who won Roe v. Wade), Congresspersons and of course, my mother, Magi. (pronounced “Maggie”). This short film is an Official Selection of the Paris Short Film Festival, CineFest10 in Uruguay and MoviePlay Film Festival (2022).
