AWI Sanctuary Space presents: “My Mom” Watch Party + Filmmaker Q&A
An ongoing Continued Connections program that creates virtual spaces for folks to connect at the intersection of art and mental health.
Watch the replay of our virtual watch party and filmmaker Q&A where we screened and celebrated our May 2022 short film competition winner: My Mom.
About the filmmaker:
This film, My Mom was created as part of a personal project series by Chara Bui (she/her). This series contains a short film collection about mental health experiences accompanied by music she played on guitar. She believes that art is a powerful gateway toward healing, resilience, and growth and that storytelling is a profound way for us to connect to each other.
