SINGLE CHOICE walks viewers through the sticky ethical and practical challenges. Single motherhood is about so much more than the path from insemination to birth. It’s an emotional lifelong journey filled with unknowns: Should I really go ahead with this? Am I equipped to take this on?

This evenings event is co-sponsored by Hunter College Women and Gender Studies.

The evening kicks off with a reception on Monday, May 3, 2009 at 6:30pm followed by screening beginning at 7pm and a panel discussion with Q&A post-screening. REEL DIALOGUE will take place in the Lang Recital Hall at Hunter College , 695 Park Avenue , 4th Floor, North Building (69th Street between Lexington and Park Avenues, NYC). Filmmaker will be present. Refreshments will be served.

SINGLE CHOICE: MANY LIVES explores single motherhood via donor insemination and its implications through the intimate perspectives of mothers, donor-conceived individuals, and donors, among others, to raise awareness about assisted reproductive technologies and the growing trend of alternative families. This relevant and timely film skillfully travels around the country- and the heart- to get to the bottom of the changing face of parenthood.
