ZERO WEEKS: Chicago Premiere
Join the filmmaking team for the CHICAGO PREMIERE of ZERO WEEKS! After the screening, enjoy an informative Q&A panel featuring Director Ky Dickens and special guest U.S. Congressperson Jan Schakowsky. Additional panel guests include subjects from the film; Dr. David Soglin, Chief Medical Officer of LaRabida Children's Hospital; small business leaders from Honey Butter Fried Chicken and In These Times magazine; and Ellen Bravo, Co-Director of Family Values @ Work. Panel discussion will be moderated by Iliana Mora, President of Women Employed.

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.
