In "Ninjababy," film director Yngvild Sve Flikke breaks taboos, tackling touchy subjects like unwanted pregnancy, childlessness, and abortion with ease and irony. Why did she decide to shoot a comedy about women's choice to be or not to be mothers? And how did the audience react to her movie? These will be the topics for discussion with Norwegian actor and artistic curator for Vaba Lava Theatre (Tallinn), Harald Thompson Rosenstrøm. "Ninjababy's" lead actress Kristine Kujath Thorp will join the talk with her reflection on how relatable the main character's struggle is to her.
