About this submission

Godspeed is a film about an expectant couple grappling with their relationship as they contemplate terminating their pregnancy on a night of civil unrest. This past year I was reading Toni Morrison's Beloved and in the book an enslaved mother kills her own child to protect it from growing up in slavery and it sparked a lot of thought for me. I wanted to think about this in a modern context, especially with all the things going on this past year.
