Wanda's Picks Radio Show Friday, May 23, 2014

We speak to Jubilith Moore, Director and Eugenie Chan, Dramaturg, about Chiori Miyagawa's world premiere, This Lingering Life at Theatre of Yugen in San Francisco at Z Space, 450 Florida Street, June 5-14, 2014.

Karin pumps milk at her teaching job in Breastmilk.

We then shift to a conversation with filmmaker Dana Ben-Ari about Breastmilk, her first feature length film which looks at a new political frontier involving women's bodies--breastfeeding. What happens after the baby arrives, right? How is nursing one's baby now a social hot potatoe in certain social circles where what is so natural is economically inconvenient and socially frowned on or if not frowned on, certainly not supported by institutions where women who want to work have to choose between nursing their children and having a career. The director is in town and will be at evening screening of her film at The Roxie where her film is opening today. It is also opening in Oakland at The New Parkway. Visit
Playwright, Laurinda D. Brown
