Documentary screening and discussion: “To Kid or Not to Kid: The Movie”

February 1, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The University of Maine Department of Sociology will host a screening and discussion of a new documentary, “To Kid or Not to Kid: The Movie.” The event is free and open to the public.

“To Kid or Not to Kid,” from the award-winning director of the New York Times Critics’ Pick “Musicwood,” aims to dispel the myth that living childfree is weird, selfish or somehow wrong. In a world where women are threatened for speaking openly about living childfree, two women from different generations search for ways to support each other in making the decision to live without kids.

The screening will be followed by a question and answer session and panel discussion with Maxine Trump, the filmmaker and director; Amy Blackstone, a UMaine professor of sociology and author of the forthcoming book “Childfree by Choice”; Andrea Irwin, executive director of the Mabel Wadsworth Center, and Jessica Wade, host of the popular Facebook page “The Childfree Choice.”

A reception with refreshments and a cash bar will follow. More information is online.
