Screening and Discussion: Christy Turlington Burns’ “No Woman, No Cry”
You are invited to attend a screening and discussion of Gallatin alumna Christy Turlington Burns’ documentary film “No Woman, No Cry,” which will be followed by a short discussion with co-producer Clancy McCarty (GAL ’08), undergraduate student Lily Jordahl, and other guests.
Synopsis: For too many women, pregnancy is a death sentence. One thousand women die each day from complications during pregnancy or childbirth. Shockingly, nearly all maternal deaths and disabilities can be prevented. This fascinating documentary directed by fashion icon Christy Turlington Burns tells the powerful stories of at-risk pregnant women in four parts of the world, including a remote Maasai tribe in Tanzania, a slum of Bangladesh, a post-abortion care ward in Guatemala, and a prenatal clinic in the United States.
