Sex and Earth Day – Award-Winning Environmental Film Describes an Unorthodox Way to Slow Global Warming
Watch it online for free this spring
April 1, 2013, Denver - Even though sex and global warming are rarely discussed in the same sentence, much less in the same film, the long ignored connection was recently explored in the 2011 award-winning environmental documentary, Mother: Caring for 7 Billion (2011).  In celebration of Earth Day, the filmmakers of Mother announced the Internet release of their 2013 “Director’s Cut” will stream for free on the internet from April 19 until the end of May. 
Christophe Fauchere, the director and co-producer says, â€œWe want Mother to be viewed by as many people as possible for Earth Day because Mother holds up a mirror and shows people a very different way to look at their role on this planet.”  
Lisa Hymas from The Grist writes of the film, “This is not your father’s population documentary…  Mother takes a feminist/humanist view as it explores the issues of our exploding numbers.”   
Writer Sacha Vignieri reviewed the film for Science Magazine, noting “Our choice to avoid discussion of the population issue… will not make the problems disappear.  Christophe Fauchere’s film, Mother: Caring for 7 Billion, encourages us to reengage, both publicly and personally, with the reality of what our increasing population will bring.”   
The journey to make the film was not always easy.  In her New York Times Green Blog Mireya Navarro wrote about the making of Mother, explaining the filmmakers “found some environmental groups reluctant to address the subject for fear of alienating their supporters.  One group hung up on them when they called.”   
Mother: Caring for 7 Billion is currently being shown in hundreds of classrooms around the country and is being broadcast throughout the world.  The next step in distribution is Netflix, Itunes and Hulu.   Tiroir A Films Productions’ previous award-winning environmental documentaries include The Great Squeeze (2009) and Energy Crossroads (2007).
