Director(s):

HAVE IT ALL is a true story of one meeting, one baby, and one big myth. I'm a director/writer/actress, and last year, I became a mom. Suddenly, I realized it was hard enough just to fit in a shower... I had no idea how to still be a creator in this new day-to-day, with a new identity. I thought, "How can I possibly make a film with a five-month-old?" The answer was to make a film WITH a five-month-old. This is that film, based on a morning that actually happened to me. Driving home from that meeting, I realized it was important to me to tell a story about how the baby is not the enemy, and the coworkers are not the enemy either. The expectation is the enemy. Being a mom is hard but doable. Having a career is hard but doable. What's impossible is the idea that women should be able to do both at full capacity...while still maintaining a perfect blowout.
