Make a date to see The Story of Mothers and Daughters

mother and daughter movie nightYou’ll likely see no documentary that will touch you as much as The Story of Mothers and Daughters. The film has earned rave reviews from Variety, Oprah Winfrey, U.S. News & World Report, and The Los Angeles Times, to name just a few. Beautifully produced and directed, the movie explores the mother-daughter bond in intimate detail, from cradle to grave in epic scope. With exhilarating highs and devastating lows, this movie defines the mother-daughter bond as it endures and changes over a lifetime.

The film follows 40 ordinary women and girls in key moments of the mother-daughter relationship, including a remarkably diverse group of American women of every age, race and experience. Minute by minute, you’ll see a series of moving individual mother-daughter stories. Yet by the end, it becomes one universal mother-daughter story that is true for us all: the cycle of life, a repeating pattern of comings together and drawings apart. The film looks at the union of pregnancy followed by the separation of birth; the sweet closeness of childhood to the stormy estrangement of adolescence; the reconciliation and sharing during adulthood yielding to aging; passing away and eventually to the renewal of the coming generation.

The film, which is free and open to the public, will be shown Thursday, April 10, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, in the education room at our West Chester location. Light snacks will be provided and a discussion will follow the film. Please make reservations by calling (513) 475-UC4U or register online.
