71: Amanda Micheli on “Vegas Baby” & IVF Treatment
In “Vegas Baby,” filmmaker Amanda Micheli follows several wannabe parents who enter a contest for free IVF treatment at a Las Vegas fertility clinic – ranging from a Midwestern couple to a Lady Gaga impersonator. Micheli’s previous films include “Double Dare” about female stunt women and the Oscar-nominated short “La Corona” about a Colombian women’s prison and its beauty pageant. Pure Nonfiction host Thom Powers interviews Micheli about the making of “Vegas Baby” and her personal motivations to take on this topic.
