A sneak preview of this inspiring documentary about art and motherhood followed by Q & A with Director Mary Trunk. Friday, February 22nd at 7:30pm @Topanga LibraryFilmed over seven years, following the lives of 4 women, Lost In Living illuminates how the choice of being a mother can affect not only one' s art and approach to creativity but also parenting expectations and failures, issues of friendship, marriage and domestic routines; in short, how do we balance creativity and dirty dishes.”Families can feel very confronted when their mother — their emotional anchor — wants to shut herself away to do something that does not involve them. It is much more 'normal' for men to do this, but woman's need for a creative outlet can feel far more threatening to her loved ones. The more we can support each other in this — and also demystify the creative act — the better. That's why your film is so important, Mary!” – Rachel Power, Author of The Divided Heart
