The Janes

Tia Lessin & Emma Pildes | US | 102

In the spring of 1972, police raided an apartment on the South Side of Chicago. Seven women were arrested and charged. Using code names, blindfolds, and safe houses to protect their identities and their work, they built an underground service for women seeking safe, affordable, illegal abortions. They called themselves "Jane." Facing off against the mafia, the church, and the state, the Janes exhibited unparalleled bravery and compassion for those most in need.

Choices

Erica Rose & Jess Jacobs | US | 17

An unexpected pregnancy forces 27-year-old Zazie Clarke to make a choice... or in this case, both choices. In parallel universes, Zazie's decisions to become a mother and to have an abortion force her to finally face adulthood, finding vulnerability and a deeper connection to the women in her life than she ever knew was possible.

Performer

beccs

Hailed as one of NYLON Magazine’s “favorite cool girls”, a John Lennon Songwriting Finalist, and an “indie-pop vocalist of astonishing candor” by the HuffPost, beccs confronts and heals audiences with a soul-stirring voice that is as dynamic as it is vulnerable. The alternative pop artist has been critically acclaimed by Refinery29, NYLON, AudioFemme, PopDust, Huffington Post Queer Voices and featured on The BUILD Series with Monet X Change (RuPaul’s Drag Race) for her queer-inclusive Christmas hit “Before This Christmas Ends”. Holding up a mirror to herself and society at large, beccs’ songwriting has been awarded by the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, the International Songwriting Competition, Coffee Music Project, and more. Her majestic indie pop single ""Such A Love”, self-produced in quarantine with Godfrey Furchtgott and mixed by Alex Epton (Arca, FKA Twigs, Bjork), calls out our self-aggrandizing ways and calls to action a self-sacrificing love to save what's left of the land and the sea. beccs is recording her sophomore EP which is set to release in 2022.
