Jennifer Dworkin’s LOVE & DIANE is a frank and  astonishingly intimate real-life drama of a mother and daughter  desperate for love and forgiveness, but caught in a devastating cycle.  During the 1980s, a crack cocaine epidemic ravaged and impoverished many  inner city neighborhoods. As parents like Diane succumbed to addiction,  a generation of children like Love entered the foster care system. Shot  over ten years, the film centers on Love and Diane after the family is  reunited and is struggling to reconnect. Now 18 and a mother herself,  Love must reconcile her anger and confront the ways in which her  mother’s past mistakes haunt her life. Diane, in turn, makes new choices  for herself, seeking to break the treadmill of addiction and poverty.  Powerful and immediate, LOVE & DIANE is an epic film that shatters stereotypes and offers hope amidst seemingly impossible odds.
The film will be screened at the Film Society at Lincoln Center in NYC at 7 PM.
