Loading Docs 2020 - About Bloody Time!

Web (Full Length) – 2020

In this short documentary, mother and filmmaker Rachel Judkins addresses the shame, stress and sadness that comes with her monthly period  an act of self-discovery she believes is well overdue. At 40 years old, Judkins has had over 300 periods. In this film she explores her menstrual journey from young teenagehood to adult life as a wife and mother, with honesty and humour. Judkins has spent her career helping other directors' visions come to life as a researcher for film and television.  About Bloody Time marks her debut at the directorial helm, and she is supported by an all-women team. 

It’s honest, self-deprecating, surprisingly fresh in its approach, and explores a lot in eight minutes.
– Spinoff writer Leonie Hayden on About Bloody Time, 21 August 2020
