The seemingly sleepy intersection of Delaware Ave. and 12th St. in Fort Pierce, Florida is ground zero for the ferocious abortion rights battle raging in America. On one corner stands an abortion clinic; across the street is the Pregnancy Care Center, a pro-life outpost dedicated to heading off abortion seekers at the pass.
12th & Delaware provides a compelling, fly-on-the-wall view of the ideological trench warfare that takes place daily at this crossroads, where women struggle to deal with unwanted pregnancy. Directed by Oscar nominees Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady's (Jesus Camp), 12TH & Delaware puts viewers in the middle of this intractable conflict.
An official selection of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, 12th & Delaware is the latest documentary from Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady, who also directed 2006's Jesus Camp, which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. Their other credits include Rehab for Terrorists, Freakonomics: The Movie and the award-winning The Boys of Baraka.
12th & Delaware was directed and produced by Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing; editor, Enat Sidi; cinematography by Katherine Patterson; associate producers, Christina Gonzalez and Craig Atkinson; music by David Darling. For HBO: supervising producer, Sara Bernstein; executive producer, Sheila Nevins.
