The seemingly sleepy intersection of Delaware Ave. and 12th St. in Fort Pierce, Florida is ground zero for the ferocious abortion rights battle raging in America. On one corner stands an abortion clinic; across the street is the Pregnancy Care Center, a pro-life outpost dedicated to heading off abortion seekers at the pass. 12TH AND DELAWARE provides a compelling, fly-on-the-wall view of the ideological trench warfare that takes place daily at this crossroads, where women struggle to deal with unwanted pregnancy. Directed by Oscar nominees Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady (Jesus Camp), 12TH AND DELAWARE puts viewers in the middle of this intractable conflict.
About The DocYard:
For decades, Boston has been a center for documentary filmmaking. It is a place where students come to learn and experiment, where some of documentary’s giants are teaching and creating new work, and where the craft is continuously nurtured and expanded. Today’s filmmakers are breaking new ground that has its foundation, more often than not, in Boston’s rich documentary legacy.
Celebrating what is innovative, interesting, and inspiring in documentary, The DocYard is a bi-weekly film and discussion series at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge. Every other Tuesday from February through April, we will gather together to be introduced to films and filmmakers and connect with one another.
Our goal is to grow a vibrant, creative community for Boston’s filmmakers, film students and film lovers through each of these special events.
