 People’s Liberation."

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.
