Documentary

This documentary is an unflinchingly provocative, humorous, informative and inspirational exploration of just how, when and why the next generation gets fed. The film dives into the fray of what really happens among new parents - those who want to breastfeed, those who can't breastfeed and a whole culture caught up in the heady mix of stress, bliss and judgment that have made breastfeeding choices a matter of polarizing social debate. This film uncovers all the most surprising and concealed aspects of what it means to have milk: from hooter hiders to work-place pumping, from career moms to gay parents, from wet nurses to sex practices, from freaked-out fathers and impassioned "lactivists" to the moms who halt breastfeeding before their infant is 6 months old. The result is an illuminating portrait of an everyday human subject rarely shown on film. Aiming beyond simplistic debates over what is natural or normal, The film scopes out new territory. For it is not only a revealing inquiry into our modern approach to one of the body's most remarkable functions - it's also an examination of how the most personal things become political and a stirring sketch of the breathtakingly diverse experience of modern parenthood itself.
