I bumped into this trailer today on Jody Pearls blog REinventing Fashion and I am so glad I did. The way these women talk about friendship, being a parent and failing, making art "stuck in second gear".... I love the gut level honesty. I can so relate to these struggles.
This is what it is:
Behind the domestic curtain of motherhood, where the creative impulse can flourish or languish, are four women determined to make a go of it. Filmed over seven years, Lost In Living, confronts the contradictions inherent in personal ambition and self-sacrifice, female friendship and mental isolation, big projects and dirty dishes. The complex realities of family life unfold in this documentary film about the messy intersection of motherhood and artistic expression.
