The Edge of Joy

Pathfinder International and Woodlawn Avenue Productions Present

Admission is free but RSVP is required.

Filmmaker Dawn Sinclair Shapiro follows an ensemble cast of doctors, midwives, and families to the frontlines of maternal care, as they battle the second highest number of maternal deaths in the world. Set in Nigeria, where a woman’s lifetime risk of dying in pregnancy or childbith is 1 in 18, this unique film captures the dramatic story of pregnancy and childbirth in a low-resource setting.
