About the event
Documentary film screening of No One Told Me, an observational documentary about the postpartum experience. The screening will be followed by a conversation about postpartum care in the community facilitated by Zulilah Merry (the filmmaker), Elise (mother in the film) and Rachael Hollinger (Postpartum Doula from Nouris(her) Postpartum).
A cozy gathering under the new moon - for those who are parents and those who are not. Think: tea and Zulilah's banana bread and postpartum snacks made by Rachael, who happens to also be an amazing chef. A moment to think about what it means to bring children into the world. To consider how we can create awareness within our community to support new parents and help them land softly. And for those with children, a moment to reflect on our own recent or not so recent postpartum time. Newborns and nursing infants welcome!
Doors open at 6:00 PM - screening starts at 6:30 PM.
The film is an hour long and we will have an hour after for discussion.
Sliding scale ticket price between $15 and $20. Additional donations to support efforts to get this film seen across the globe are very much appreciated.
NO ONE TOLD ME provides a raw and honest look at the postpartum period, a unique time in a woman's life that is rarely captured in documentary film. The purely observational footage of incredibly intimate moments shows the highs and lows encountered by parents Elise and Marc as they adapt to life with a baby. Focusing on the new mother, the film shares the physical, hormonal and psychological changes she faces during the first 10 weeks of motherhood.
