THE SERIES

‘How to Hack Birth Control’ is a comedy digital series on how to navigate and take charge in today’s contraception universe. Told through the sharp wit and perky charm of the narrator Ruth, Birth Control takes a run at a hit list of ‘not supposed to talk about,’ scenarios. How do you get the morning after pill quickly and for free? Where can you hide your birth control? How do you get your doctor to listen to you? All of the things women want to know but are taught to be too afraid to ask.  Filled with backpack cats, patriotic American eagles, musical numbers and the game show, ‘Let’s Not Make a Baby,’  each memorable contraceptive milestone is a riotous new discovery. Authentically raw and LOL fun, ‘How to Hack Birth Control,’ will make you wonder what else sex-ed never told you.

The San Pedro International Film Festival was founded to celebrate the diverse culture and community of San Pedro with a wide spectrum of independent films, documentaries, and shorts.

The BLOW-UP ARTHOUSE FILM FESTIVAL links the most creative artists together with very intelligent audiences for its annual festival of narrative and documentary films, shorts, animations, experimental films, and student work. The Festival was named after Michelangelo Antonioni's iconic film "Blow-Up".

 

The Festival is an organization dedicated to the discovery and development of independent artists and audiences. The Festival seeks to inspire independent film artists from the United States and around the world and to introduce audiences to their new work. We also welcome established Arthouse filmmakers, who already attained a major contribution to the art of filmmaking. The festival would like to approach the caliber of films made by such great directors as Eisenstein, Antonioni, Fellini, Tarkovsky, Godard, Truffaut, Pasolini, Kurosawa, Buñuel, Norshteyn.
