Baby Mama High
Baby Mama High is a short documentary directed by Heather Ross that follows the journey of young teenage mother Yessenia. It’s the last few weeks of high school for Yessenia, a soft-spoken senior with two small daughters and a boyfriend who’d rather she stay at home than go to school. Yessenia is forced to choose: stand up for herself and her daughters, or give in to expectation. This is the second film Heather and I worked on together and I am always impressed with her compassion and devotion to raising awareness of important social issues, especially among young women, as with our other collaboration Girls On the Wall.
