Trapped Trailer (2016)


Trailer for Trapped.

From 2011 to 2013, hundreds of regulations were passed restricting access to abortion in America. Reproductive rights advocates refer to these as "TRAP" laws, or Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers. While these laws have been enacted in 11 states, Southern clinics, in particular have been hit hardest and are now in a fight for survival. In Texas, less than half of the clinics open in 2013 are still functioning. In Alabama, three clinics struggle to keep their doors open. And in Mississippi, just one abortion clinic remains. Some of the most common requirements with which clinics struggle to comply include: requiring physicians to obtain admitting privileges from local hospitals for any doctor performing abortions, requiring that clinics undertake expensive renovations such as widening hallways by a few inches to accommodate wheelchairs and gurneys they will rarely use, and requiring other regulations usually reserved for hospitals even though abortion providers rarely require.

With Trapped Director Dawn Porter is settling herself in as a documentary specialist. She has 4 prior documentaries in which she was too at the helm:

Rise: The Promise of My Brother's Keeper
Independent Lens (TV Series Documentary)
Spies of Mississippi
Gideon's Army

Trapped Trailer Screencap

The Documentary which has premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, SXSW and Miami International Film Festival, takes on one of the most controversial issues in America today...Abortion. This is an issue that you are either for or against, there is no gray area. So, they will most likely have a tougher time appealing to a wide audience as many people will simply not see it based on the opinion it presents on the issue of abortion.
