The Waiting Time

17 minutes | 2005 I 16mm

The Waiting Time is a thinking woman’s sex education film that explores desire, conception and the long waiting time of gestation.  The film is an experimental diary of my first (wanted) pregnancy, that unfolds seasonally/chronologically in nine chapters.
