In Japan, there is a special way to grieve after having an abortion. Inspired by these Buddhist rituals, Mizuko is an intimate look of how a half-Japanese American woman re-evaluates the controversial drawing of ‘the line’ in abortion ethics, when she becomes pregnant herself.
Mizuko (Water Child) is a short animated documentary film that is currently in production.
Winner of the Tribeca If/Then Short Documentary Program and grant for the American Northeast event, hosted by DOC NYC.
