ABOUT ZERO WEEKS:
Most Americans agree that family comes first, but the U.S. is the only industrialized country without paid family leave. In one of the richest countries in the world, having a baby, a medical emergency or an aging parent can be a trigger into poverty. Weaving powerful stories together with insightful interviews with leading policymakers and business owners, ZERO WEEKS explores America’s paid leave crisis, the cost of doing nothing, and what we can do about it.
ZERO WEEKS has been awarded BEST DOCUMENTARY by the International Women’s Film Festival, the Colorado International Film Festival, and the Spotlight Film Awards.
