The United States is the only country in the developed world that does not guarantee its citizens paid family leave. In the new documentary Zero Weeks, which premieres November 11 at DOC NYC in New York City, director Ky Dickens explores the impact of that policy on families dealing with the birth of a child, a medical crisis or an aging parent. For many Americans, especially those with low incomes, it comes down to a choice between keeping a job and caring for someone they love.
Technicolor PostWorks New York continues its long-standing association with DOC NYC as a Signature Sponsor of the documentary film festival happening this month in New York. Ben Murray, the facility’s vice president/creative services, and Joe Beirne, its chief technology officer, will co-host a panel aimed at first-time filmmakers entitled Post-Production Secrets. Additionally, Technicolor PostWorks provided post-production services for five films screening at the festival.
