37days is a short film that will be shot in Athens, Greece in late August  2016.

It is about a pregnant girl on a “birth strike”.

Maria is working at a nail salon. She's working off the books, without insurance or benefits. She's also 9 months pregnant. One day she’s suddenly fired. The same night, she has an unsettling dream. She wakes up from the dream certain that she will not go into labor until she gets her job back. And so, Maria's "Birth strike” begins.

Right now people in Greece are watching their lives change from one day to the next and feel powerless to intervene. Greeks abroad also experience this, as plans to return are abandoned, families divided. The whole point of 37 Days is to make all those people who have suffered from the crisis in the last years feel empowered.

The project has participated at this years Berlinale Film Festival at the Short Film Station.

I have starter a Kickstarter campaign trying to raise money for the film and I am sending you a link to it. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/319517217/37-days
