We are inviting you to be a part of our amazing event in Sarasota, FL Screening of 'Mama Bears' Documentary at Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center.

Event Details

"Mama Bears" follows two mothers whose profound love for their LGBTQ children has turned them into fierce advocates for the queer community.

Spread across the country but connected through private Facebook groups, they call themselves “mama bears” because while their love is warm and fuzzy, they fight ferociously to make the world kinder and safer for all LGBTQ+ people. Although some may have grown up as fundamentalist, evangelical Christians, mama bears are willing to risk losing friends, family, and faith communities to keep their offspring safe—even if it challenges their belief systems and rips their worlds apart.

MAMA BEARS is an intimate, thought-provoking exploration of the journeys taken by Sara Cunningham and Kimberly Shappley, two “mama bears” —whose profound love for their LGBTQ children has turned them into fierce advocates for the entire queer community — and Tammi Terrell Morris, a young African American lesbian whose struggle for self-acceptance perfectly exemplifies why the mama bears are so vitally important.

The Fogartyville screening includes a talkback with producer Laura Tatham. "Mama Bears" is presented in partnership with the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers, which connects U.S.-based documentary filmmakers with communities throughout the South for screenings and conversations around important stories and the art of filmmaking.
