Ricepaper is the media presenting partner for Min Sook Lee’s My Toxic Baby, showing at the New Asia Film Festival on Sunday, May 30, 2010 at 1pm.
A documentary about “one mother’s search for safe, sane and affordable ways to raise her child in a toxic world,” My Toxic Baby was an Official Selection for the 2010 Earth Day Film Festival as well as the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival. Considering the chemicals and toxins abundant in baby products such as baby bottles, diaper rash cream, enabling a safe environment for your child seems a daunting task in addition to the every day trials and tribulations of making sure your child is well-fed and well-rested. With this documentary, Min Sook Lee “aims to broaden the options that are made available to parents in the context of the chemical world we live in today.”
