Screening & discussion of Independent Len’s "Mimi and Dona."

"Mimi and Dona" examines that an estimated 4.6 million Americans have an intellectual or developmental disability, and 75% of these individuals live at home with family. What happens when aging family members can no longer care for them? Mimi and Dona explores this issue through the intimate story of a quirky and fiercely devoted mother-daughter duo. Since her husband died in 1968, Mimi Thornton has lived with her daughter Dona in a suburban home in Dallas. Dona has an intellectual disability and probably some undiagnosed autism. Over the years, Mimi and Dona have carved out a happy life for themselves — one filled with errands, church, weekly visits to the beauty parlor, and nightly doses of Wheel of Fortune. However, Mimi and Dona's symbiotic existence is about to end. At age 92, Mimi can no longer care for Dona; home to live in an assisted living facility.

Event is free and open to the public.
