mamafilm is a pop up microcinema running from May - October of 2019. They are committed to representing the reality of a diverse range of mamas, across race, class, geography, sexual preference, ability and generation; and to supporting the work of creators, who are also nurturers. ‘mamas’ come in many packages. They are not bound by gender or age, genetics or traditional roles. They are defined by the love and care that they give.
The screening will be followed by a curated conversation with local experts and other non-profit organizations that align with Soufra's theme, and can speak to the individual and collective realities, challenges and triumphs of the vast community of people who are connected by their societal role as nurturers.
mamafilm founder, Lela Meadow-Conner, is using this project to foster connection through exploration of what 'motherhood' truly means, “I am so honored and excited to be piloting this film series here in Wichita, and to share different motherhood perspectives from around the world – and right here in our community - through on-screen representation of nurturing.”
mamafilm’s microcinema project is presented by Fidelity Bank, with additional support from Bokeh Development, Revolutsia, LivingSound Custom Home Automation, Not Dead Yet Vintage, and media sponsors Wichita Mom’s Blog and KMUW.
Tickets are $10 and attendees may patron the businesses within Revolutsia to bring their own concessions.
