Subjects covered include work-place pumping, career moms, gay parents, wet nurses, sex practices, freaked-out fathers, impassioned “lactivists” and moms who halt breastfeeding before their infant is six months old.
“My producing partner Abby Epstein and I were drawn to ‘Breastmilk’ because of the way filmmaker Dana Ben-Ari approached the subject of breastfeeding through personal stories, without inserting judgment or bias,” Lake said. “The film is refreshingly free of advocacy, quietly observed and elegantly filmed with a surprising amount of humor.”
The documentary “Breastmilk” hits U.S. theaters — starting with a Mother’s Day weekend release on May 7 in New York.Then “Breastmilk”will open in Los Angeles on May 16 and expand into other markets during the summer.
