On VOD: ZERO WEEKS

Coming to VOD this Friday, November 2:
ZERO WEEKS

Director:
Ky Dickens

Premiere:
Camden 2017

Select Festivals:
DOC NYC, Portland, Chicago Feminist, Green Mountain, Cleveland, Nashville

About:
An exploration of the essential need for paid family leave.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
In most countries, workers are given several weeks of paid leave and job security should they need time off to care for a newborn or a sick relative or to tend to a personal health emergency. Only two nations offer exactly zero weeks: Papua New Guinea and the United States, where individuals are often forced to choose between keeping their job or taking care of their family or health. Through powerful human stories, director Ky Dickens demonstrates the urgent need to address this vital issue.
