The Newcomb Feminist Film Series presents

"The Business of Being Born" with Filmmaker Abby Epstein

Date: Friday, November 18, 2011
Time: 7:00 PM
Building: Woldenberg Art Center, Freeman Auditorium
Location: uptown campus

Join us for a screening of "The Business of Being Born" and a special discussion with filmmaker Abby Epstein! Birth is a miracle, a rite of passage, a natural part of life. But birth is also big business. Compelled to explore the subject after the delivery of her first child, actress Ricki Lake recruited filmmaker Abby Epstein to question the way American women have babies. Epstein gained access to several pregnant women as they weighed their options. Along the way, Epstein conducted interviews with a number of obstetricians, experts and advocates about the history, culture and economics of childbirth. The film's fundamental question: should most births be viewed as a natural life process, or should every delivery be treated as a potential medical emergency?

This program is sponsored by the Newcomb College Institute and the Newcomb-Tulane College Reading Project, and funded in part by the Dorothy K. Daspit Fund.
