Hedgebrook presents The Clyde Theatre’s Films & Filmmakers Event: A screening of the film “The Babushkas of Chernobyl” and Q&A with award-winning filmmaker and Hedgebrook alum Holly Morris.

Holly Morris is an author, documentarian, and the host of PBS’s Adventure Divas, but it’s her work as producer, director, and writer of “The Babushkas of Chernobyl” that brings her to The Clyde on Sunday, Oct. 23.

Following three women of a small group that has returned to their homes after the nuclear plant explosion, “The Babushkas of Chernobyl” tells a story of the call of home and the subjective nature of risk, one that is both rousing and haunting.

Audiences from the LA Film Festival (where Morris won the Jury Award for Directing) to today have fallen in love with The Babushkas, and now you have a chance to do so too.

Holly Morris will talk about the process of discovering, developing, and filming the story, and answer questions afterwards.

Join us at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 23 at The Clyde Theatre located at 217 First Street, Langley, WA 98260. Admission is $7, or just $5 for those under 17 or over 65. Tickets are available at The Clyde’s box office which will be open at 12:30 p.m.
