Year One

Documentary, Motherhood 31m 2021

Year One is an award-winning documentary about surviving the first year of motherhood made by new mom and Brooklyn filmmaker Erin Bagwell.

In the 30 minute documentary, each scene unfolds like an intimate diary entry as we hear Erin’s inner thoughts, witness her struggles, and celebrate the a-ha moments as she documents her motherhood journey from pregnancy to her daughter’s first birthday.

From feeling abandoned when her partner goes back to work, to finding the courage to seek help with her postpartum depression, and connecting with a community of other mothers - Year One is a story of vulnerability and resilience. But perhaps the most important part of Erin’s motherhood journey is watching her learn how to take care of herself as she learns how to take care of her little girl. She’s not a bad mom because she has postpartum depression, she’s a great mom and she has postpartum depression.
