Trapped: A Short Film on Teen Unplanned Pregnancy
The prolife film featured in this blog was done by I-TEC, an organization founded by my friend Steve Saint. I have seen many prolife films going back to the 70’s but found this one intriguing, interesting, very different, and uniquely powerful. It’s such an unusual length too. Most prolife films are short clips or movie length, and unfortunately, the short ones don’t allow viewers much time to experience the emotions or to ponder. This one, on the other hand, has a large amount of silence, allowing for contemplation. The fact that the air doesn’t get filled with words helps listeners draw their own conclusions based on the obvious facts.
I appreciated that the boyfriend didn’t have a change of heart, because often they don’t. But to show the dad in the photos beaming with his grandchild was precious, because when they see their grandchildren, most parents do have a change in heart. So, the film makers give hope, but they don’t make it a fairytale.
This would be a great video to share with your friends and family on social media!
