Short Attention Span Cinema: Listening to Mom from StoryCorps

Friday, April 15 - Thursday, May 26, 2022

Whether Mother’s Day is a happy or difficult day for you and yours, we’ve pulled together six stories of motherhood in many different forms to offer you joy, peace, understanding, and a chance to think about the mother figures in your life and what they mean to you.

A different film from the program plays each week before our regular features—see schedule below.
