4:30PM – MAMA BEARS

Mama Bears is a feature-length documentary that explores the many ways in which the lives of conservative, Christian mothers are impacted and utterly transformed when they decide to affirm and advocate on behalf of their LGBTQ children. As members of a private Facebook group—which they call the “mama bears” because of the fierceness with which its members fight for their offspring’s rights—they offer one another support and understanding in the struggle to overcome the teachings of their evangelical churches. The film premiered at SXSW in March 2022 and is currently on the festival circuit.
