THE STORY OF MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS
Directed by Catherine Ryan

From cradle to grave, from perfect to painful, the story of the mother-daughter bond is explored in intimate detail and epic scope; revealing a core experience within every woman’s life. From over 500 interviews, the film follows 40 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. From birth to death, these stories from ordinary American women define the mother-daughter bond as it endures and changes over a lifetime.

Minute by minute, we see a series of moving individual mother/daughter stories; yet by the end, the cumulative effect reveals a universal mother-daughter story that is true for us all: the cycle of life, a repeating pattern of comings together and drawings apart; 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 of next generation. (72 min.)

Madelyn Osur Film Library's collection of films from over 25 years of past Festivals, is housed in the Rocky Mountain Women's Film Institute offices. The library named after our dear friend Madelyn Osur who was an active member of the Festival’s Operations Committee for 10 years, served on the Board for seven years, and for five years served as Chair of the Film Selection Committee. Madelyn loved films that were a poignant but never sloppy examination of the human condition—from a woman’s perspective. Watch your favorite films again or discover new films to love all from a woman's perspective, by signing up for an RMWFI library card. The suggested donation for an individual card is $20 and for a group card is $50, but you may give as you are able. (Revenue from the cards helps to offset the costs of obtaining the films and maintaining the library.)
