Breastmilk-Key-Image-Photo-by-by-Cynthia-Van-Elk-280x140Coming to theatres today, Wednesday, May 7: BREASTMILK

Dana Ben-Ari’s indepth look at mother’s milk debuted at Woodstock. It went on to screen at DOC NYC, Citizen Jane, and Australia’s Human Rights Arts & Film Fest.

I previously wrote about the film for the DOC NYC program, saying:
Bypassing the breastmilk vs. formula debate, Dana Ben-Ari’s film instead looks at the practical, societal, and biological realities faced by women who choose to breastfeed. Why are so few nursing mothers able to breastfeed exclusively? What has made a natural biological act into a taboo public activity? Where can an adoptive mother turn if she wants the benefits of breastmilk for her child? With candor and humor, mothers and other experts discuss the challenges, misconceptions and fears around mother’s milk.
