Unseen Movie Screening In-Person
We are excited to host a screening of the new documentary “UNSEEN: How We’re Failing Parent Caregivers & Why It Matters”!
The film is an unfiltered glimpse into the lives of parents caring for children and adults with disabilities or complex medical needs, and opens the discussion about what supports are needed in our community. After the screening, stop by the table of Parent to Parent of NYS. They will have information and resources for caregivers. For more information about Parent to Parent.
The film follows Jess and Ryan Ronne, a blended family with 8 children, including Lucas, who has profound disabilities requiring total care. Their situation has gotten more and more challenging as Lucas gets older and stronger. With limited resources and support, caregiving takes a toll on their physical and mental health.
It’s a common story among parent caregivers: the isolation, uncertainty about the future, lack of options, and a never-ending daily to-do list means the role of caregiver overpowers nearly every other facet of life. Video diaries from diverse caregivers featured in the film illustrate this universality, while interviews with mental health experts and policy/legal advocates provide a broader view on the societal impacts.
Through the power of unfiltered, compelling human stories, Unseen cultivates compassion and tangible support for the caregivers in our communities. For more about the movie.
