Mother: Caring for 7 Billion (2011) ($4)

Mother: Caring for 7 Billion is an award-winning human rights film that explores the challenges we face living in a world of 7 billion.   It tells the story of Beth, an American mother and child's right activist, and her journey to understand how overpopulation is impacting children and families around the world.  Beth travels to Ethiopia and meets a young woman Zinet, living in extreme poverty, who, against all odds, found the courage to break free from thousand-year-old-cultural barriers by refusing to get married young and fighting to attend school.  By featuring world-renowned experts, it shows how this pivotal issue intersects with gender equity, religion, reproductive health, economic inequality and the environment.  Mother is fundamentally a film of hope and shows the strength of the human spirit to make a better world.
