See this inspiring documentary about a fearless sea captain who sails a ship through loopholes in international law, providing abortions on the high seas, working with an amazing team of emboldened activists who trust women to handle abortion on their own terms.

ALRANZ will speak before the film about our outdated law in Aotearoa that still makes accessing safe abortions difficult for so many women, and how we can make it easier for women to make their own decisions about their bodies here in New Zealand.

Synopsis:

Dr. Rebecca Gomperts sails a ship around the world, providing abortions at sea for women with no legal alternative. Her idea begins as flawed spectacle, faced with governmental, religious, and military blockade. But with each roadblock comes a more refined mission, until Rebecca realizes she can use new technologies to bypass law – and train women to give themselves abortions using WHO-researched protocols with pills. From there we witness her create an underground network of emboldened, informed activists who trust women to handle abortion themselves. Vessel is Rebecca’s story: one of a woman who hears and answers a calling, and transforms a wildly improbable idea into a global movement.
