    Film Synopsis:

    Nominated at over 25 film festivals, including as winner in the Best Film category at the Boulder International Film Festival, Mother: Caring for 7 Billion breaks a 40-year taboo by bringing to light an issue that silently fuels our most pressing environmental, humanitarian and social crises - population growth. It is a critical time to talk about this subject because, as of 2011, the world’s population has reached seven billion. At the same time, talking about population has become politically incorrect because of the sensitive issues surrounding the topic – religion, economics, family planning and gender inequality. Yet it is an issue we cannot afford to ignore as one billion people still suffer from chronic hunger.
