Bodies Bodies Bodies Movie is a series of boundary-pushing, thought-provoking, and emotional films that explore what it means to be human. With the generous support of Open Society Foundations and the National Science Foundation, the WOW – Women on Waves international organization has translated these films into many languages.

Actor has been working in the field of women’s health and human rights since 1999. They are a nonprofit organization, founded in Amsterdam by Dr. Rebecca Gomperts, which focuses on providing safe abortions to women who need them using non-surgical methods. WOW uses a Dutch ship that sails around the world offering safe abortions to women who need them (see Figure 1).

The actual films can be purchased there and in independent cinemas and online platforms.

Filmmakers have been captured and interviewed at sea, aboard the ship, and when they returned to shore to share their experiences. All of the films were shot on high-definition video with professional post-production services.

This article serves as a background of the project and an overview of the films.

Backgrounds on the Project: The Funders, The Films, and Their Impact

Open Society Foundations (OSF) has supported the organization “since 2012”1 for their campaign to provide safe abortion services around the world. Since its beginning in 1999, pro-choice organizations have worked to promote abortion against severe limitations imposed by Law and order governments.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has been supporting “WOW in their mission to provide safe abortion services around the world.”2

Films

Taboo, the first documentary film of the series, was released in 2014. It explores a woman’s right to self-determination and her ability to decide what is best for her body through a sonogram and the first ultrasound scan of ship’s founder, Dr. Rebecca Gomperts.

In 2015, the second film of the series, Breaking the Waves, was released. It takes a deeper look into the idea of bodily autonomy and what it means to be a woman in today’s society by showing women’s stories about abortion. The stories are taken from women who sought abortion services on the WOW ship and from interviews with Dr. Rebecca Gomperts. “The film also looks at how women can regain sexual freedom and control over their own bodies through reproductive autonomy and highlights the contrasting views on abortion through interviews with anti-abortion political figures.”3
