Mothering in a Time of Crisis: A Conversation with the Mothers of We Stay in the House on IG Live

September 29, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) invites you to join us for a casual conversation with filmmaker Kiyoko McCrae on IG Live, on Wednesday, September 29, 2021, at 1 pm PST.


What does it really look like when mothers are responsible for doing both professional work and the labor of raising kids and overseeing their education during the pandemic–all while confined to the four walls of their own homes? New Orleans filmmaker Kiyoko McCrae has turned her lens on these deeply personal moments in her short documentary We Stay in the House, which premiered online in August as part of Hindsight.


The film follows four mothers of color, including McCrae, as they navigate COVID, job loss and transitions, and remote work and school. She says, “I feel like I really made it for the moms, fellow mothers, and wanting to feel less invisible.”


Join us for a lively discussion on IG Live with filmmaker Kiyoko McCrae and CAAM Talent Development and Special Projects Manager Sapana Sakya. We encourage you to watch the documentary We Stay in the House before joining the discussion on IG Live. Watch here
