My Baby Cries is a short film that will that explore the gruelling struggles of a young couple’s journey into parenthood. Tackling such traumatic issues as depression, miscarriage and infertility, this dark story follows the destructive psychological struggles that Sara & Abe battle. Written by actor and producer Faith Elizabeth (13 Graves and Phila), who is also the founder of Yes She Cannes, a female empowerment campaign supporting women at Cannes Film Festival.

Faith explains why the project is so important to her. “My Baby Cries is an expression of pain that has profoundly affected my life. I suffered a miscarriage at 21 years old, it was so traumatic losing my baby. It broke my heart. I cried for months and I struggled with depression, as many people do in a similar situation. Then last year my sister and my best friend tragically lost their babies in the same week. It was a very dark time, supporting some of the people I love the most suffer so much pain and knowing exactly how they felt. Following this my friend sadly struggled to get pregnant again, she was having fertility issues and she was even looking into IVF”.

“I am so passionate about this film, as I hope it sheds light on the very real pain that millions of people face. I am excited (if a little nervous), taking on such a huge topic. I feel so much responsibility- especially as this will also be my directorial debut”.

With the World Health Organisation reporting in 2020 that 264 million people globally are suffering with depression and 186 million people are struggling with fertility issues, this film plans to shine a light on an emotive topic that affects so many people yet is rarely seen on the big screen.
