“HUSH” World Premiere at Women’s Film Festival in Beverly Hills

LOS ANGELES – “HUSH”, a feature documentary by Indo-Canadian Director Punam Kumar Gill, Executive Producer Drew Martin, and Editor/Producer Joses Martin, made its worldwide festival premiere at the LA Femme International Film Festival, Thursday, October 15th at 8PM at Laemmle’s Music Hall Theater in Beverly Hills. LA Femme brands itself as “Films by women, for everyone.” The film that looks into claims of long-term negative health side-effects of the elective, medical procedure of abortion, was met with a packed theater and overwhelming support from a wide range of audience members. “The best thing was the conversations that happened on the street after the film. Across politics, and ideologies, women were opening up about their reproductive history – miscarriages, premature births, child birth or abortion.” shared Producer Joses Martin “To listen to that open, non-judgemental conversation was unbelievable. I think that everyone walks away from watching the film with a more open mind than they had going in.”
From there the film went on to win awards at WorldFest in Houston, and the World Documentary Awards in Jakarta, Indonesia.
