Spoken Word Poet Hollie McNish Highlights the Daily Battles of Breastfeeding Mothers

Jake Dypka collaborates with British poet and spoken word artist, Hollie McNish, to deliver a poignant and hard-hitting short film/music video. Embarrassed explores the daily battle mothers face when breast-feeding in public & the controversy concerning this subject – posing the question of why is titillation accepted and sustenance rejected?

Alongside the funding from Channel 4, Indy8 raised half the budget from a kickstarter campaign to fund the ambitious 4-day shoot around London. As well as this MPC, Siren and Factory Sound were amazingly supportive in helping finish the film.
