Trailer: To Be Born

To Be Born is a short film (12 minutes!) soon to be released by Spirit Juice Studios. The trailer is also short, but oh-so-effective. Not easy to watch, but necessary.
To Be Born is about a young woman faced with an unplanned pregnancy that seeks to have an abortion. In the midst of the procedure, she finds herself in a regrettable situation when she hears her unborn daughter begin to describe the chilling details of what is happening.

There is a lot of this type of quick and incisive short film that has been popping up in the last couple of years. They are usually issues or thematic pieces that are used to drive home a point.

A good source for quality shorts can be found over at The Doorpost Film Project where their current 2010 contest is entering the finalist stage. Generally, the material is very good, but YMMV. I like this site because the categories are: Authenticity, Community, Sacrifice, Commitment, Truth, Identity, and Hope.
