Mama Bears

2022, 90 minutes, Dir: Daresha Kyi, USA.

This documentary is an exploration of the journeys taken by Sara Cunningham and Kimberly Shappley, two “mama bears”—conservative, Christian mothers whose profound love for their LGBTQ+ children has turned them into fierce advocates for the entire queer community—and Tammi Terrell Morris, a young African- American lesbian whose struggle for self-acceptance perfectly exemplifies why the mama bears are so vitally important. Shot in a poetic, deeply intimate style, MAMA BEARS uses social media posts, home movies, photographs, interviews, and cinema verité footage to explore the complex intersections of politics, religion, faith, and true, unconditional love.
