Film Highlights Issues Around Maternal Mortality

Christy Turlington Burns is known best for her work as a model, but she and her organization Every Mother Counts have been working on the issue of maternal mortality after experiencing serious complications during her own childbirth.

Her film “No Woman, No Cry” explores issues around maternal mortality in four countries – Tanzania, Guatemala, Bangladesh and the United States. It’s showing tonight in Concord; Christy is taking part in a panel discussion after the screening. She joins All Things Considered host Brady Carlson to talk about some of the issues raised in the film.
