Brooklyn native and first-time director Louisa Brown will premiere her light-hearted film “Eight Limbs of Raja,” which was made in Brooklyn with Brooklyn talent and stars Bridget Barkan (recently in “God’s Pocket” with the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman), on April 3.

Louisa will join Christy Turlington at SoHo House as they share insights as filmmakers at a benefit film screening for Turlington’s charity, Every Mother Counts, which is dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for all moms. 

Featuring films by and about women, LUNAFEST is a traveling film festival that sheds light on topics relevant to the way we live today, from the ironic way life gets in the way when we seek a perfect balance, to the celebration as midwives in Haiti graduate thanks to the education efforts of Every Mothear Counts.
