Out On Film Screening of "Mama Bears"
September 27 @ 7:00 pm | $12.00
Mama Bears is an exploration of the journeys taken by Sara Cunningham and Kimberly Shappley, two "mama bears," and Tammi Terrell Morris, a young African American lesbian whose struggle for self-acceptance perfectly exemplifies why the mama bears are so vitally important. Mama Bears is the story of women who have allowed nearly every aspect of their lives to be completely reshaped by love. Although they may have grown up as fundamentalist, evangelical Christians, the mama bears are willing to risk losing friends, family, and faith communities to keep their children safe—even if it challenges their belief systems and rips their worlds apart. This transcendent documentary is the latest work from Atlanta director Daresha Kyi.
