Overview

Mother, the film, breaks a 40-year taboo by bringing to light an issue that silently fuels our largest environmental, humanitarian and social crises - population growth. Since the 1960s the world population has nearly doubled, adding more than 3 billion people. At the same time, talking about population has become politically incorrect because of the sensitivity of the issues surrounding the topic- religion, economics, family planning and gender inequality. The film illustrates both the over consumption and the inequity side of the population issue by following Beth, a mother, a child-rights activist and the last sibling of a large American family of twelve, as she discovers the thorny complexities of the population dilemma and highlights a different path to solve it.

Review

This film is so refreshing because it highlights a very important issue that is not talked about enough.nnPopulation growth is a seismic driver of so much poverty for individual women and their families, so much civil unrest (16 of top 20 failed states have a fertility rate over 4) and so much environmental degradation. And yet it has been hushed and does not appear in our daily news.nnMother is a very engaging film that pulled me in on an emotional and intellectual basis.nnAnd, like good documentaries do, gave me the motivation to make a greater difference on this issue.nnBeing sure that every one of the 200+ million women that want family planning and do not have access get the access they need is the least we can do.
