1. Parenting – Between Happy & Unhappy and Matter of Course & Refusal

A Happy Eventis a film that presents the notion that certain attributes we associate with motherhood, such as sacrifice, patience, inexhaustibility and other motherly qualities are not necessarily innate to motherhood nor do they come naturally. After the screening, there will be an opportunity to discuss parenting not only as a mom's or a couple's issue.
