About this Event

co-presented with IDA

A filmmaker ferries us along a self-reflexive search for her biological roots, weaving a cinematic dreamscape of intimate, lyrical storytelling. After a lifetime of separation, her birth parents are reunited across oceans by the infant they surrendered. A Pandora’s Box is unearthed, paradoxically provoking the estrangement of her adoptive family, deeper uncertainty, and saudades.

In the decades surrounding Roe v. Wade, the middle-American veil of secrecy fashioned to enshroud a birth mother's shame forced women into homes for unwed mothers, coercing them into giving their unborn babies up for adoption and unlawfully sealing their identities. Saudade incises those seals, exposing lifetimes of secrecy and wounding to allow for regeneration.

Following the screening, we will be joined by Director Theresa Ortolani and Co-Writer/Editor Adam Boese for a feedback discussion.
