The Business of Being Born

businessofbeingborn.jpgIn college I saw a film in my cross-cultural developmental psychology class that made childbirth (squatting, under a tree) look, well, natural - far from the environmental or procedural pragmatics of today's norms. And natural or not, wherever your birth experience(s) ranked on the standard - chaotic/invasive scale, consider checking out The Business of Being Born, in which actress Ricki Lake and filmmaker Abby Epstein tackle the notion of birth as a business. The film screens at the Belmont Cinema this Thursday (Feb. 7, 7:30pm; see also other local and national screenings).
