What is Endometriosis?
All Up There (2022), Bonnie MacRae
This short film was written and directed by Bonnie MacRae inspired by her experiences with endometriosis. It was made by an all female and non-binary crew and filmed in Glasgow.
The film examines contradictions and correlations: comparing the pain of chronic illness with the pain of medical gaslighting, and contrasting the joys and challenges of coming of age while working class and disabled. It explores cycles that reflect the menstrual cycle - the repeated doctor’s visits are set to a repetitive, frenetic soundtrack.
