Lost Childhoods: Family Film & Discussion Day





Save to:

On Sunday, August 6th, the MAH will be hosting filmmaker, Nicole Opper for a screening of the docu-comedy series, The F Word. This series chronicles the journey of Nicole and Kristan, an Oakland-based queer couple who want to adopt a kid. This short, comedic documentary series chronicles their journey into the foster care system to become fostadopt parents, bumbling through a bizarre and bureaucratic maze in order to learn everything they can about the troubled institution on which they are staking their dreams of parenthood.

After the film screening will be a Q&A discussion with Nicole Opper, followed by discussion break-out sessions facilitated with community partners and collaborators who made the Lost Childhoods: Voices of Santa Cruz County Youth exhibition possible. This is a family-friendly event and will be accompanied by the MAH’s Kid Happy Hour, which provides art activities available for youth for the duration of the event.
