Umbrella is an abstract short film about the experience of trauma. Catherine Tyc, the film’s creator, writes “By choosing to abstract the subject, I was hoping to avoid the traditional liberal vs. conservative debate that happens when people talk about abortion. In deciding to inject this subject matter as a subtext to the Sorrentino story, I was questioning a few things that do not seem to be talked about when abortion is talked about. Primarily, the level of discomfort that some feminist women have towards other women that have abortions and whether or not that comes from the controversial aura that surrounds the subject. I wanted to take on the subject from a purely emotional perspective to bridge that and also invite men as well as women into understanding what this experience can be like for some women.”
