What do the United States and Papua New Guinea have in common? They're the only countries in the world without paid family leave. With 78% of Americans living paycheck-to-paycheck, families are often forced to choose between taking time off to care for a loved one or continuing to work in order to keep their jobs and health care benefits.

While Zero Weeks aligns with GoodCinema’s value of humanity over greed, the film also explores how paid family leave benefits businesses as well as individuals. Join GoodCinema for a screening of Zero Weeks followed by an interactive panel discussion on how the family leave crisis affects local Coloradans and what you can do to help.

Award-winning director Ky Dickens was inspired to make Zero Weeks after facing financial depletion and emotional turmoil for "not enough time," due to a lack of paid leave, after the birth of her first child.
