PRIDE MONTH! MFF22 FAVE! MAMA BEARS is the story of women who have allowed their lives to be reshaped by love. Fundamentalist, evangelical Christians are willing to risk losing friends, family, and faith communities to keep their LGBTQ+ children safe–even if it challenges their belief systems and rips their worlds apart. Shot in a poetic, deeply intimate style, the film uses social media posts, home movies, photos, interviews, and cinema verité to explore the complex intersections of politics, religion, faith, and true, unconditional love.
