#LEGALSAFEFREE

SHOVE is a metaphorical dance film reflecting the realities of unsafe abortions that occur worldwide.

SYNOPSIS

Shove is anchored to an atmospheric narrative situated in the cold, soviet streets of Berlin. We travel through the eyes of our bold protagonist as she sees the world in a post-traumatic state. Breathless motion and anxious thoughts clutter her mind through the dimly-lit streets that contrast with distinct taboos shown through metamorphosis. We witness grotesque mutations, high-rise all-encompassing city scapes that engulf our audience and take them on an energetic journey that points to the unavoidable reality for many women across the world who have to face legal and moral barriers to their right to choose and to have full autonomy over their bodies.

REVIEWS

The images are just as strong as the narrative which with symbolism fights to show and express the fight that has taken such a long time and the pain that many women have to go through in this situation."
