Throughout July we will be spotlighting films by AWD Directing Members that focus on reproductive rights. Interviewed by fellow member Meredith Yinger, the Directors discuss the inspiration for their films and what it was like having a film where the subject matter was suddenly a “hot button issue” after Roe v Wade was overturned.
Spotlight Video #1: Melisa Resch: “The Line”
Melisa talks with Meredith about the inspiration for writing/directing “The Line,” creating a protective space for her actors while shooting this emotionally challenging film, and the importance of collaboration.
The Line logline: In 1993, a queer activist meets a punk loner during a clinic defense demonstration. When events spin out of control both women learn what they are truly capable of.
