Indie Lens Pop-Up: Mimi and Dona

Monday, November 16, 2015 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm
  • Library Hall

An evening with the Yampa Valley Autism Program featuring a film by Sophie Sartain

For 64 years, 92-year-old Mimi has cared for her daughter Dona, who has an intellectual disability, and now faces the inevitable: to find Dona a home. This alternately heartbreaking and heartwarming film by Mimi’s granddaughter tells the story of a quirky and deeply connected mother-daughter duo, and their effect on three generations of a Texas family.

“Heart-wrenching. As unflinching as it is beautiful.” - The New York Times

Stick around for a community discussion after the film.
