THIS IS FAMILY

What constitutes a family? How is the typical American family defined? How has the notion of gay families evolved over the past decades? Is there such a thing as a typical gay family?

This fascinating and sometimes shocking documentary profiles the diversity of gay and transgender households in America today. With the aspirations and diverse ways of life for gay and alternative households changing so quickly, is society adapting fast enough to keep up with them?

Each section of this video profiles different scenarios and cultures and shows how alternative lifestyles have lead to acceptable and happy lives. There are two mother, and two father families. There are shelters for children and young adults that have been "tossed out" of their traditional families because of sex changes and alternate lifestyles. How they have coped with family rejection and non-acceptance is described. This documentary will have an elementary school, high school, and university version available in late fall.

WHY DO WE MARRY?

In an age when it's neither socially or legally necessary, why do Canadians choose to marry? This provocative documentary looks at a convention that is not only persistent but thriving. It begins with a young couple whose piercings and tattoos would lead you to believe they are not the marrying kind, but Kathleen McEvoy and Andrew Sherratt have decided to marry for reasons that are as old fashioned as the institution itself. It's the moral thing to do, they say. But there are couples who marry just to have the party. They are lured by the romance of the event and the idea of being prince and princess for day, encouraged by a huge wedding industry that promotes the sensational wedding. And if it's not the couple who wants the marriage, it may very well be their parents who insist on the nuptials. Why Do We Marry? Takes viewers beyond the ceremony to reveal the many reasons why people say "I do".

MOTHERHOOD MANIFESTO, THE

Looks at the obstacles facing working mothers and families and the employer and public policy changes needed to restore work-life balance.

Did you know that...

Only four countries in the world- Lesotho, Swaziland, Papua New Guinea and the United States-fail to provide paid maternity leave to all workers? Canada now guarantees a full year of paid parental leave and California recently became the first state in the U.S. to provide such paid leave? Businesses that create flexible work environments find that productivity goes up, they attract more talent, turnover is reduced and their bottom line is improved?

Moving personal stories combined with humorous animation, expert commentary and hilarious old film clips tell the tale of what happens to working mothers and their families in America. See how enlightened employers and public policy can make paid family leave, flexible working hours, part-time parity, universal healthcare, excellent childcare, after-school programs and realistic living wages a reality for American families.

The film is based on the book The Motherhood Manifesto by Joan Blades and Kristin Rowe- Finkbeiner.
