Cavu Pictures has come on board to release the documentary “Breastmilk” in U.S. theaters — starting with a Mother’s Day weekend release on May 7 in New York.

Dana Ben-Ari directed “Breastmilk” with Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein executive producing. The film will open in Los Angeles on May 16 and expand into other markets during the summer.

The film explores the social debate over breastfeeding among those who want to breastfeed, those who can’t breastfeed and the cultural impact of breastfeeding choices. Subjects covered include work-place pumping, career moms, gay parents, wet nurses,  sex practices, freaked-out fathers, impassioned “lactivists” and moms who halt breastfeeding before their infant is six months old.

“When we saw ‘Breastmilk’ at both the Woodstock Film Festival and the Doc NYC film festival, it was obvious how passionate audiences were for both the film and the subject of breastfeeding,” said Cavu co-persidents Michael Sergio and Isil Bagdadi. »
