Mother: Caring for 7 Billion

Mother breaks a 40-year taboo by bringing to light an issue that silently fuels our most pressing environmental, humanitarian and social crises — population growth. Compounded by our ravenous appetite for natural resources, population growth puts an unprecedented burden on the life system we all depend on. Grounded in the theories of social scientist Riane Eisler, the film strives not to blame but to highlight a different path for humanity. We must change our conquering mindset into a nurturing one; the first step is to raise the status of women worldwide.
