NEW YORK, NY, December 29, 2014 (PRWEB) December 29, 2014
Premiering in DC, 40 Weeks, produced by Big Belli LLC, is the first documentary to follow the week by week journey of pregnancy by bringing the stories of a diverse group of families to the screen. Conceived and directed by Christopher Henze as the movie his co-producer wife Dominique Debroux, had wanted to see when she was pregnant and feeling the need for community and information that was easy to assimilate.
40 Weeks’ mission is to support women with virtual community and information to help them feel confident through their pregnancy and help them have the best possible outcomes. Dominique and Christopher are building a web portal, bigbelli.com, to continue offering filmed information and community beyond 40 Weeks the movie and help women know that they are not alone in their journey.
The red carpet premiere will be held on:
January 7th at 6pm At the Landmark E-Street. Which is located at 555 11th Street NW Washington, DC 20004.
Newyorkfamily.com praises the intimacy the moms granted the filmmakers. “That, perhaps, is the film’s greatest gift,” they said. "There are many hard, difficult moments...But all of the women approach the incredible changes and challenges they are facing with strength and a sense of humor. In the end, the message is refreshing: no one has a perfect pregnancy.”
To distribute the film in theaters, Big Belli has partnered with Gathr.us Theatrical On Demand®. This new approach that allows a film’s audience to bring movies they like to their communities, is changing film distribution and bringing more women’s movies to theater’s near you.
