We’ve been following Pink Moon for a while, including its February 2014 crowdfunding campaign and the release of the trailer a couple of months ago. Well now, rather than keeping the film under wraps only for those who manage to see it at film festivals or screening, the short movie has been released online for us all to see.
The film, about ‘LGBTQ and Reproductive Rights’, is set ‘In a society where heterosexuals are persecuted and abortion is forbidden, two teens are forced to hide an unplanned pregnancy before their secret romance is exposed.’
Director Sal Bardo has a great history of releasing his shorts online for the world to view, as we’ve previously featured the likes of the excellent Chaser and Sam. You can watch Pink Moon below, which may become a feature-length movie in the near future..
On his latest film, Bardo commented to Interview magazine, “There’s an all-out assault on reproductive rights in this country, and the same thing is happening with LGBT rights. Both of those issues are about personal freedom, and they’re fundamentally connected.”
