The Club Documentary...

'When a daughter loses a mother, the intervals between grief responses lengthen over time, but her longing never disappears.  It always hovers at the edge of her awareness, prepared to surface at any time, in any place, in the least expected way.  This isn't pathological.  It's normal.  It's why you find yourself, at 24, or 35, or 43, unwrapping a present, or walking down an aisle, or crossing a busy street, doubled over and missing your mother, because she died when you were 17.'Hope Edelman, Motherless Daughters: The Legacy of Loss

The Club is a documentary film-in-progress exploring the lives of four women who all experienced the loss of their mothers in their formative years.  This candid and unique film sheds light on the fine line they walk between loss and liberation and examines how this loss has impacted on the decisions they've subsequently made and ultimately the lives they've created for themselves.

This documentary will be the first to address this particular loss so candidly on film.  Our aim is to provide a platform for a range of other ideas surrounding the issue.  Since beginning this project over a year ago, the film makers are contacted almost daily by those wishing to share their stories and expressing an insatiable need for such a film. The gravitas of this subject matter is demonstrated by our recently completed successful kickstarter campaign and the gracious contributions of Rosie O'Donnell, Molly Shannon and author of NY Times Bestseller Motherless Daughters, Hope Edelman; as well as the growing number of supporters we've gathered over the last couple of years.
