Each Screening will be followed by a Question & Answer session with filmmaker Dana Ben-Ari and executive producers Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein.
First time director/producer Dana Ben-Ari became fascinated with breastfeeding after the birth of her first child. She quickly learned about the physical challenges of motherhood, and the problems women encounter. After her second child, she began to examine breastfeeding on film, talking to scores of women.
The result is her groundbreaking documentary, BREASTMILK.
With unexpected humor, with an unflinching camera, with some guilt and some pain, this film takes the unusual risk of examining what breast milk truly means.
We are often told that breast milk is better. Better for babies, better for mothers, better for nutrition, health, well-being, and society. Many accept this and yet there are still very few women who succeed in breastfeeding exclusively for the recommended six months and beyond. What would it take to change?
