By Staff


A film featuring Beth Osnes, an assistant professor in the department of theater and dance at the University of Colorado Boulder, was named the Best Colorado Film after its premiere last month at the Boulder International Film Festival.

"Mother: Caring Our Way Out of the Population Dilemma" casts a light on a root cause of the planet's largest environmental, humanitarian and social crises. Since the 1960s, the world population has nearly doubled, adding more than 3 billion people. The film introduces Osnes, a mother, child-rights activist and the last sibling of a family of 12, as she navigates the complexities of the population issue and highlights a different path to solve it. Osnes is co-founder of Mothers Acting Out.

The film was directed by Christopher Fauchere and produced by Fauchere and Joyce Johnson.
