WATCH TRAILER
Vessel begins with a young doctor who lived by the sea, and an unlikely idea.  Rebecca Gomperts, horrified by the realities created by anti-abortion law around the world, felt compelled to challenge this.  Her method: to provide abortions on a ship in offshore waters.Her project, Women on Waves, begins as flawed spectacle, a media frenzy, faced with governmental, religious, and military blockades.  But with each setback comes a more refined mission, until Rebecca has the revelation that she can use new technologies to bypass law – and train women to give themselves safe abortions using WHO-sanctioned protocols with pills.We witness the creation of an underground network of emboldened, informed activists, working at the cutting edge of global reproductive rights, who trust women to handle abortion themselves. Vessel is Rebecca’s story: one of a woman who heard and answered a calling, and transformed a wildly improbable idea into a global movement.

Join Planned Parenthood of Northern New England  for this special screening as a reminder of how far we have come and where we still have to go in order to ensure access to safe abortion services for all.

Andrew Pinard: Discovering Magic. Are you the type of person who loves to be surprised; the kind of person that marvels at how remarkable the world is and celebrates the weird and wonderful ways that we experience the world? If so, Discovering Magic is the experience for you! Back for its second year, this “mind-numbing, jaw-dropping, eye-opening” experience takes audiences on a guided tour of the impossible and the absurd. Using only the most ordinary of objects, accomplished actor, conjuror, puppeteer, storyteller, and award-winning performer Andrew Pinard brings the ordinary to life with the most surprising results. The only show of its kind in the New England, audiences have traveled from Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire to experience sleight of hand, con games, psychology, history, science, comedy, cognitive development, political spin, and more through the eyes of a “perceptual engineer” on his quest to explore distortion and guile.Pinard has been a full-time performer and theatre artist for over twenty-five years. He has presented thousands of performances throughout the northeastern United States as well as internationally in Canada, England, Switzerland, Germany, and Italy. Pinard has been recognized by his peers as one of the finest close-up performers throughout the Northeast and took the top honors in the 18th Annual New England Magic Competition. Pinard was selected twice as Editors’ Choice for Best Magical Entertainer in “The Very Best of New Hampshire” issues of New Hampshire Magazine.The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts has referred to his “impressive ability with sleight-of-hand.” After attending the premiere episode of Discovering Magic, Rick Broussard, Editor of New Hampshire Magazine, wrote: “Your show is remarkable, Andrew. Anyone who hasn’t seen it owes it to themselves to go.
