WMM's Groundbreaking Documentary Airs on P.O.V. Starting April 21st.

Women Make Movies is proud to announce the highly anticipated broadcast premiere of Jennifer Dworkin's LOVE & DIANE on acclaimed PBS Series P.O.V. on Wednesday, April 21. (Check local showtimes.)

One of the most celebrated and talked about documentaries of 2003, and winner of countless awards, LOVE & DIANE ( is the frank and powerfully intimate story of a mother reunited with her children after their six years in foster care, and the family's struggle to reconnect. Despite being caught in a devastating cycle of drug addiction, depression, teen pregnancy and the bureaucracy of an over-burdened welfare system, the family demonstrates an inspiring resiliency and ability to find strength during the most desperate times. The film offers an astonishing view from inside the state welfare and foster care systems, and presents a real triumph of the spirit of a family surviving against insurmountable odds.

LOVE & DIANE is essential viewing for educators, social workers, mental health professionals and any organization interested in utilizing independent media to impact public policy and effect change. The broadcast is an unprecedented opportunity to raise public awareness, and we need your help in spreading the word.
