Born with a truncated body and no arms, successful London painter-photographer Alison Lapper is no stranger to adversity. An exhibition of her nude self-portraits is causing a sensation in British art circles when an unexpected pregnancy places her stable life in jeopardy. Up against a painfully ill-equipped social service system, how will she manage to physically care for her baby and to cope with the social stigma attached to being a single, disabled mom? Alisons Baby is a sensitive, straight-up portrait of woman who is at once ordinary and extraordinary. This doc was successfully pitched last spring at Hot Docs inaugural Toronto Documentary Forum.
