Breastfeeding Pinays caps off the National Breastfeeding Awareness Month with a film screening of “Milk” on August 30, Sunday, 10:30 a.m. at Robinsons Galleria Cinema 2.
“Milk” is a documentary that looks into the global issues on birth and infant nutrition, particularly the effects of commercialization on infant mortality.
Writer, director and producer Noemí Weis says, “Milk offers reflection and ignites conversation. I am hoping that by uniting women from around the world in the universal topics of motherhood, birth and life, together, we will create the much-needed change to offer new lives bright and healthy futures.”
The film was nominated for best director and best editor at the 2015 Madrid Intarnational Film Festival.
Tickets are priced at Php500 for VIP with reserved seats, Php200 for general admission and Php100 for students. To reserve tickets, click here.
The Manila screening of Milk follows the success of Hakab Na! 2015, also organized by Breastfeeding Pinays, in which more than 1,712 mothers simultaneously breastfed 1,729 babies across the Philippines as well as in Singapore and France.
