16mm Film: Childcare: People’s Liberation
This event will take place in person at the Library for the Performing Arts.
A subsidiary element of the women’s liberation movement of the late 1960s, the issue of childcare - why it’s needed and how it should be provided - has persisted. Join us for an evening of film and discussion with the independent filmmakers who have brought these questions to the fore, featuring the documentary Through the Night (2020), about a 24-hour daycare center in New Rochelle and the mothers who depend upon it, and the restoration premiere of the 1970 film Childcare: People’s Liberation.
While tickets to all events at the Library for the Performing Arts are free, seating is granted on a first come first served basis. Five minutes before showtime, seats will be given out to people on the wait list regardless of reservation status.
The Library encourages mask wearing in all public spaces.
