Parenthood is a magical, mystifying, and fulfilling experience, but it’s also hard, lonely, and expensive. People are often very comfortable seeing others have similar experiences. Whether it is the exuberance of watching our children grow and learn, or dealing with loss and obstacles, we are never alone. Examples of these poignant and difficult family moments are everywhere, but nowhere are they more relevant or accessible than in film, especially in documentary.
