Los Angeles, CA (Washington Bangla Radio - PRWEB) September 22, 2010: Hot Flash Havoc (, one of the most provocative and revealing films made about menopause, has been selected for the annual Aspen Filmfest ( The documentary will be shown at the Wheeler Opera House located at 320 East Hyman Ave., Aspen, CO on Oct. 2, 2010 at 3:00 p.m.

Hot Flash Havoc has been described as enlightening, controversial, humorous, and profound. It's a crash-course in what you need to know about menopause with the potential to be a life-changing experience for women everywhere. The film not only sheds light on the confusion stemming from a decade of misguided facts, but captures poignant personal stories of real women through in-depth interviews alongside the world's leading experts on menopause.

"Menopause touches every woman and their families," said the film's executive producer Heidi Houston. "I'm delighted that Aspen Filmfest realizes the significance of our film and the importance of not keeping this subject under wraps any longer," added Houston.

The Women's Health Initiative (WHI) study released in 2002, misrepresented hormonal replacement therapy (HRT) causing confusion, hysteria and fear between health-care providers as well as their patients leaving women bewildered about what they should do. This film through careful analysis and interviews with leading medical experts comes forward for the first time to set the record straight.

"Hot Flash Havoc provides compelling information about menopause that will empower women for the 'Second Act' of their lives," states noted Harvard medical authority and featured expert Alan Altman, MD.
