Matinee for Moms at Odrastalište
Center for Moms and Odrastalište, an unusually usual kindergarten where children love to go since September 2013, organizes a matinee once a month at the weekend, where moms can enjoy tea, watch socially engaging films and discuss them.
Film screenings we have seen include:
Babies, a French documentary taking a look at the first year in the lives of four babies from from Mongolia, Namibia, San Francisco, and Tokyo. Aside from exploring varied cultures and interesting traditions, set against beautiful landscapes, the film explores everyday events seen from the perspective of these yougest and newest members of our society.
Consuming Kids, an American documentary examines the advertising of children’s and family products, illuminating the practices of the marketing industry, which uses the latest in psychology, anthropology, and neuroscience to transform American children into one of the most powerful and profitable demographics in the world.
Business of Being Born, a documentary exploring the modern experience of giving birth in USA. This fim takes a critical look of American healthcare, a system based on drugs and expensive interventions, supporting the position that childbirth is to be treated as an emergency instead of a natural occurrence. Our question was: “Is that the case only in America?”
On the occasion of International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, in cooperation with Yumama web site, on November 2013, we have created the infographic.
We wanted to illustrate the disturbing data recorded in our country.
The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women’s purpose is to raise awareness that too many women around the world are subjected to rape, domestiv abuse and others forms of violence every day. This day also help to identify and discuss the causes which lead to these brutal facts.
