Bleed With Me showcases sixteen people’s perceptions and experiences of menstruation, and calls for increased conversations about menstruation. Menstruation is a biological process that approximately half the world experiences at some point in their lives. However, society stigmatizes menstruation. By presenting a range of different perspectives on menstruation, Bleed With Me highlights that menstruation is experienced subjectively, and impacts people’s lives deeply. As such, this film seeks to de-stigmatize menstruation by encouraging open, and honest conversations about menstruation.
