LAFF Interview with 20 WEEKS Director Leena Pendharker

LAFF 2017


20 WEEKS follows a new couple in their thirties, who after learning that their baby has a very serious health issue in utero after the 20 weeks scan, must decide whether or not to move forward with the pregnancy. It's a drama about how prenatal and genetic testing can now contribute to the choices people face in their pregnancies.

Today my guest on the show is the writer/director of 20 WEEKS Leena Pendharker. We talk about her inspiration for the film, pregnancy, family life, and filmmaking. It was a pleasure to chat with Leena about her wonderful film that just had its world premiere to wide acclaim at this year's LAFF.

For more information about the film go to their official website.
