DocFest: Before Us
Join us for post-screening Q&A with director Hedia Maron!
A filmmaker looking to get to the bottom of her mysterious mother’s hippie past uncovers an outrageous family history that changes everything. Before Us takes an unconventional approach to the adoption narrative, exploring the ramifications of the filmmaker’s mom’s secrets and placing them within the context of a 1960s counterculture that devalued women and children, an adoption industry that viewed illegitimate pregnancy as a pathology, and a society without easy access to birth control.
Presented as part of San Francisco Documentary Festival 2023.
