"Mother and Child" sculpture awarded at Moms-In-Film One-Year Anniversary Celebration!
"Mother and Child" by Barbara LublinerI am so pleased to have my sculpture awarded to the amazing Marielle Heller by the amazing Moms-in-Film!Marielle Heller receives inaugural Moms-in-Film awardMoms-in-Film, an organization founded to energize the careers of mothers in film and television by providing community, funding and advocacy, celebrated its one-year anniversary at The Players on April 18. The bi-coastal organization chose to honor filmmaker and mother Marielle Heller, whose film DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL ignited audiences and critics alike at Sundance and Berlin, and whose upcoming film CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME? stars Melissa McCarthy.Accepting the award, Heller commented, “"Before I had a kid, I thought I'd have to keep those parts of my life separate. I didn't think, as a mother, they'd take me seriously as a filmmaker. I had my child 5 weeks before my film premiere and there was no separation, he was there, breastfeeding at my premiere party. I realized how much I didn't want those things separated... It does feel like our personal feminist fight right now."Presenting Heller with the award, Moms-in-Film founder Mathilde Dratwa commented, “Mari pulled off the birth of a film and the birth of a child in crazy syncopation, and more importantly, she did not hide it. That is revolutionary.”The award itself is a concrete sculpture titled MOTHER AND CHILD by Barbara Lubliner whose work, often inspired by her experience giving birth and mothering, can be seen on the Brooklyn Museum Feminist Art Base.
