Greenlit: No Woman No Cry, OWN

No Woman, No Cry (1 x ) – In her directorial debut, Christy Turlington Burns’ documentary tells the personal stories of pregnant women and their caregivers in four countries as they try to avoid becoming maternal mortality statistics. Turlington puts audiences in the shoes of a young Maasai mother who has gone into labor and must walk five miles to the nearest clinic; a pregnant woman in the slums of Dhaka, Bangladesh, too ashamed to seek care; a pregnant obstetrician helping women who have no choice but to undergo illegal and dangerous abortions in Guatemala and a midwife in central Florida who serves pregnant women who are denied prenatal care because they are uninsured.
