      Birth is big business. Compelled to find answers after the stressful delivery of her first child, actress Ricki Lake recruited filmmaker Abby Epstein to explore and question the way American women have babies. Epstein gained access to several pregnant New York City women as they weighed their options. Footage of women having babies punctuates "The Business of Being Born." Each experience is unique; all are equally beautiful and equally surprising. Giving birth is clearly the most physically challenging event these women have ever gone through, but it is also the most emotionally rewarding.

      Along the way, we hear from a number of obstetricians, experts and advocates about the history, culture and economics of childbirth. The film's fundamental question: should most births be viewed as a natural life process, or should every delivery be treated as a potential medical emergency? As Epstein uncovers some surprising answers, her own pregnancy adds a very personal dimension to "The Business of Being Born," a must-see for anyone even thinking about having a baby.

            The Many Strange Stories Of Triangle Woman

              • Unrated

              • Comedy

              Triangle Woman takes you on a narrative odyssey of a series of ten short stories ranging from the grotesque, the weird, the perplexingly absurd, and the ridiculously silly. A bit of an odd character, Triangle Woman has kept these stories locked up in her head for many years. The film includes stories about a man whose finger rapidly deteriorates and the impending consequences; a nice lady who really isn't that nice; an old woman who talks backwards; an employment agency that has a man-toy named Mr. Brombellarella; among other stories. Triangle Woman is the thread that binds all of the stories together, and she imprints her bizarreness throughout the entire film.
