Synopsis: A short film about the conflict in Syria as experienced by a 32 year old rebel commander, Mowya, and a 24 year old female journalist, Nour, in Aleppo, Syria. The film clearly and concisely shows why Syrians are fighting for their freedom, told through the emotional words of two powerful characters whose lives have been torn apart by war.

MIMI & DONNA

Total Run Time: 67:00 
Director: Sophie Sartain 
Country of Origin: USA
Ratings: None
Synopsis: What happens when love runs out of time? For a 92-year-old mother, Mimi, who has cared 64 years for Dona, a daughter who has an intellectual disability, it means facing the inevitable – she will not outlive her daughter – and finding her daughter a home. This poignant, heartbreaking and, at times, humorous documentary traces this process through the story of a quirky and deeply connected mother-daughter duo. The film spotlights the challenges of aging caregivers of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities – some 4.6 million Americans, 75% of whom live at home with family – and details the ripple effects of Dona’s disability on three generations of a Texas family.
