The Together Plan’s screening of Look At Us Now, Mother! is almost upon us. The event, organised in collaboration with The Forgiveness Project, takes place this Monday at 8:30pm at the Phoenix Cinema in East Finchley.
The film tells the moving true story of mother and daughter Mildred and Gayle Kirschenbaum, charting the pair’s turbulent relationship from Gayle’s childhood to the present. A victim of shocking abuse well into her young adulthood, Gayle began a quest to find out the reasons for her mother’s behaviour, and discovered her mother’s own traumatic childhood – beginning a mother and daughter’s journey towards understanding and forgiveness.
Starring Gayle and Mildred and directed by Gayle, a professional filmmaker. the film presents a powerful and universal message that understanding and forgiveness can triumph over hate and misunderstanding, provided we are able to discuss issues and work together. This forms the core of The Together Plan’s ethos: decades of divide-and-rule communist abuse has left deep scars in the post-Soviet psyche, where fear and mistrust of one another leave communities fragile and force people into isolation. The Together Plan works to help communities discover what they can achieve collectively and help individuals to collaborate on community projects to everyone’s benefit. Gayle and Mildred’s story is a fantastic example of how making peace with a traumatic past and building a future together can make a massive difference to the lives of everyone involved, and it remains an inspiration to us all here at The Together Plan.
Be inspired by Gayle and Mildred’s amazing true story, and be instrumental in turning our inspiration into real change healing trauma in the former Soviet Union. You can book tickets online through the Phoenix cinema’s website or by phone on 020 8444 6789
