Film: Mother: Caring for the 7 Billion

Mother, the film, breaks a 40-year taboo by bringing to light an issue that
silently fuels our largest environmental, humanitarian and social crises -
population growth. 
Since the 1960s the world population has nearly doubled, adding more than 3
billion people. At the same time, talking about population has become
politically incorrect because of the sensitivity of the issues surrounding
the topic­ religion, economics, family planning and gender inequality.

The film illustrates both the over consumption and the inequity side of the
population issue by following Beth, a mother, a child-rights activist and
the last sibling of a large American family of twelve, as she discovers
the thorny complexities of the population dilemma and highlights a different
path to solve it.
