Breaking Fast with a Coca Cola | United States | 14 | Amy Omar | After growing up in the secular households of their Turkish immigrant parents in the Midwest, Ozlem and Ada are desperate to celebrate a tradition of their own. For the first time, they embark on a day of fasting and a night of feasting for Ramadan. 

All Choked Up | United States | 4 | Allison Volk | A woman must decide whether to save her husband when he starts choking on a sandwich. 

Hemorrhage | United States | 4 | Ruth Hayes | Hemorrhage is a work of agit-prop against the increasingly repressive climate in the US that is eviscerating a woman's right to choose what happens to her own body. Using an iterative animation process that incorporates rubbings of a coat hanger, images, text and voices appropriated from the New York Times and the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health arguments before the United States Supreme Court, the film moves from a relatively simple formal experiment to expressing anger about the effects of abortion bans on women's health.

Into the Thicket | United States | 12 | Devany Greenwood | While coping with her tumultuous home life, a lonely young woman finds a connection with a mysterious lady in the woods, discovering they might be more linked than her dreams make her believe.

Balikbayan | United States | 18 | Rebecca Rajadnya | A Filipina immigrant grapples with the physical distance from the family she left behind and the cultural disconnect from her daughters in the United States.

The Midwife | France | 29 | Anne-Sophie Bailly | In the French Jura mountains, at the end of fictitious Middle Ages, Else is an herbalist and a midwife. With Nicole, her young apprentice, they are disturbed during their daily practice: a stranger riding a horse demands to gather all the women of the village in its small church.

Walla Walla | United States | 21 | Hayley Durelle | Determined to find fun in a stressful situation, Kayla and Tori drive 400 miles from their Idaho town to obtain an abortion out of state.
