Jacqueline Frank has been working freelance in film production for close to twenty years. As a member of the Director's Guild of America, she has been an Assistant Director on movies such as Sophie's Choice, Brewster's Millions, and the TV program Law & Order. Her work as a documentary producer has taken her around the world, working on projects throughout Africa, Asia and Europe, on subjects ranging from big-game hunting, the environment, Buddhist pilgrimages and white water rafting expeditions.
CHOICE THOUGHTS is a short film which takes a brief look at the passions and controversy which have been swirling around the issue of birth control since Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, began her work at the turn of the century. Comprised entirely of stock footage, using humor and skillful intercutting of old and new footage, the film reveals that people's attitudes have not changed very much about this volatile subject.
