"One of the touchstones of American nonfiction cinema. "
New York Film Festival
Groundbreaking and still frighteningly relevant ten years later, Jennifer Dworkin's masterful and epic documentary LOVE & DIANE presents a searingly honest and moving examination of poverty, welfare and drug rehabilitation in the United States. Filmed in New York City over a five-year period, Dworkin documents the struggles of three generations of the Hazzard family as they face a myriad of emotional, financial and personal challenges. Now available for the first time on DVD, this special Director's Cut is an extended 155 minutes.
LOVE & DIANE is at its heart a highly charged story about a mother and daughter searching for love, redemption and hope for a new future. While caught in a devastating cycle of teen pregnancy and the bureaucracy of an over burdened welfare system, they demonstrate an inspiring resiliency and ability to find strength during the most desperate times. Without falling into stereotypes of welfare and poverty, LOVE & DIANE casts a fair, non-judgmental eye on the Hazzard's and presents a forgotten, but very real, side of the American experience.  On Monday, October 22, a special 10th anniversary screening will take place at Film Society Lincoln Center - click here for more information and tickets.
