#mybodymychoice: Never Rarely Sometimes Always

The Berlin and Sundance award winner by Eliza Hittman is a deeply intimate abortion drama about two young women in rural Pennsylvania.

Time & Tickets

When 17-year-old Autumn looks at herself in the mirror, she can see the signs beginning to manifest in her body. She visits a pregnancy centre, where her apprehensions are confirmed by a positive result on a drugstore pregnancy kit. But the centre’s pamphlets aimed at encouraging motherhood and adoption don’t tell Autumn what she wants and needs to know.

What Autumn learns about reproductive services through her own research is not encouraging. As a minor she cannot obtain an abortion in her home state without parental consent. That leaves her to consider the age-old methods women have turned to when confronting unintended pregnancies.

With the address of a Brooklyn clinic in hand, Autumn and her cousin Skylar board an early morning bus bound for New York City. But their trip takes an unexpected turn when Autumn learns that a one-visit procedure isn’t possible. As the cousins navigate two fraught days and nights in an unfamiliar and overwhelming city, their journey becomes one of profound solidarity, compassion and friendship.

The screening of Sunday July 3 at 12:10pm can be combined with a Sunday's Film Breakfast.
