About the Film:
Behind the domestic curtain of motherhood, where the creative impulse can flourish or languish, are four women determined to make a go of it. Filmed over seven years, Lost In Living, confronts the contradictions inherent in personal ambition and self-sacrifice, female friendship and mental isolation, big projects and dirty dishes. The complex realities of family life unfold in this documentary film about the messy intersection of motherhood and artistic expression.
Lost in Living puts a new spin on the topic of women’s work-life balance by focusing on artists. It illuminates important events that happen behind closed doors and unveils women artists’ personal, private and conflicted thoughts about life, family, self-image, and expression.
A Q&A with director Mary Trunk will follow the screening.
