3 Films: Have a Baby/Pangaea/Playtime


Date & Time: 
Mar 19 2017 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Have a Baby: HAVE A BABY gives a voice to infertility and unveils the class disparity within a topic that is often clouded by judgment and stereotypes. Oscar-nominated director Amanda Micheli’s provocative and suspenseful documentary follows several aspiring parents who desperately want to have a baby but are struggling with infertility and the high cost of treatments. They place themselves in the hands of a fertility clinic that sponsors an annual contest offering a prize of a free round of in-vitro fertilization—with no guarantee of pregnancy.77 min. http://vegasbabyfilm.com/?page_id=2

Pangaea: The story of a girl trapped on the roof after Hurricane Katrina. One stunning scene draws a visual parallel between how water separated the continents thousands of years ago with how water separated the girl’s family. In the very last scene, a huge contrast is shown between the lives of people, especially children, who lived through the disaster and people watching the news from the safety of their homes. 7 min.

Playtime: Jackie is 8 years old and wants to play floor hockey with her girlfriends, but the boys claim the space. The teacher says ‘boys will be boys’, but Jackie doesn’t accept this statement and sets out to make change. 10 min.
