NYC screening of No Woman No Cry film
Next Monday evening, May 2nd, the Paley Center for Media will host a screening of Christy Turlington Burns’ documentary No Woman, No Cry, which illuminates the global tragedy of women dying needlessly in pregnancy and childbirth. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion, moderated by NBC News anchor Brian Williams and featuring FCI president Ann Starrs along with Christy Turlington Burns and Dr. Suellen Miller of the University of California-San Francisco.
In her deeply moving film, Christy relates how, after a childbirth complication during her own first pregnancy, she wanted to learn more about maternal health around the world. She shares the powerful stories of at-risk pregnant women in four parts of the world: a remote Maasai tribe in Tanzania, a slum in Bangladesh, a post-abortion care ward in Guatemala, and a prenatal clinic in the United States.
