Ricki Lake Documenting Breast Feeding (and Showing a Lot of Boob)

Ricki Lake

Ricki Lake is working on one documentary about medical marijuana, one about birth control pills, and one about breast milk. That last one is titled “Breast Milk, ” so we’ll know.

It’s collaboration with filmmaker Dana Ben-Ari, pushing the envelope, we’re told, with graphic images of squirting nipples, in a stated attempt to mainstream breast feeding.

Lake told People Magazine: “The filmmaker, Dana Ben-Ari, chose to use some very graphic and playful images of lactating breasts. To me, those shots feel humorous and celebratory from a feminist perspective. We hope that brings positive attention to the film and incites awe and wonder at the capabilities of the female body!”

Ricki was born to secular Jewish parents in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, and was raised by her paternal grandmother, Sylvia Lake.
