THANKS, it’s been a great year for A GIRL LIKE HER!

 

Thanks for a Great Year!

As we near the end of 2013, I want to thank all of the moms who have
allowed me to use their voices in “A GIRL LIKE HER”. Thanks to all of
the audience members who turned out for screenings and to the writers
 and critics who have spread the word.

Critical Praise for A GIRL LIKE HER:
 “The movie speaks quietly but powerfully for human dignity. A Girl Like Her packs
an emotional wallop greater than most other films released this year, 
documentary or fiction.” —Dan Schindel, OTSTE
 
“A Girl Like Her, Ann Fessler’s quietly devastating documentary … offers a
sociologically rich and important deconstruction of a devastating double
social standard that was in effect in those days. In revealing the painful legacy 
that permanently impacted so many mothers, Fessler has finally and respectfully
given them a voice.” Geneva Anderson, Art Hound
 
“A Girl Like Her, Ann Fessler’s haunting group portrait of women who surrendered
their children for adoption in the 1950s and ’60s juxtaposes their voices with stock
archival images from an era when wrenching human drama was buried beneath
airbrushed images of family and sexuality.”— Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post
