Why She Got Pregnant

b.h. Yael

1985, 05:00 minutes, colour, English


She wanted a baby, she didn't want a child. She wanted a baby. Her friends were having babies...
Why She Got Pregnant provides a context for the multiplicit and sometimes conflicting motivations that inform any one decision. This tape explores these dynamics with a multi-layered voice over and composed images of a woman waiting, reading, fidgeting and talking with a friend. The structure is a cumulative composite of "reasons" and images.
