Directed by Mike Mills (Beginners, Thumbsucker), 20th Century Women is the story of a teenager and the three women who raise him. During the summer of 1979, a Santa Barbara single mom and boarding house landlord (Annette Bening) decides the best way she can parent her teenage son (Lucas Jade Zumann) is to enlist her young tenants – a quirky punk photographer (Greta Gerwig), a mellow handyman (Billy Crudup) and her son’s shrewd best friend (Elle Fanning) – to serve as role models in a changing world.

”A WONDERFULLY RICH, BRILLIANT COMEDY… PACKED WITH DIALOGUE THAT ABSOLUTELY SINGS AND CHARACTERS WE WANT TO STAY WITH FOREVER.”
-NPR

“A FUNNY, EMOTIONALLY PIERCING STORY.”
-New York Times

“BEAUTIFULLY PERCEPTIVE AND DEEPLY POIGNANT.”

For this year’s Film for a Cause, the Kamloops Film Festival is partnering with Kamloops YMCA-YWCA Violence Against Women Intervention and Support Services to help them collect in-need items. There are a few films in the lineup this year whose themes align with the important work that this organization does, so we thought we would offer our assistance.

YMCA-YWCA frontline staff have noted some gaps in items that they like to have on hand at the shelter for passing along to the women and their children:

Facewash/cleanser (*have lots of body wash and soap)
Deodorant
Hair elastics, headbands & bobby pins
Tampons
Hair conditioner (*have lots of shampoo)
New pillows
Towels
Nail clippers
Women’s slippers
Baby products (shampoo, wash, wipes, etc. *have lots of diapers)
Representatives from the YMCA-YWCA will be on hand before our final screening of 20th Century Women to gather any donated items or cash contributions. Based on the huge success of our partnership with the Kamloops Food Bank last year, we know we can count on our patrons to assist in this worthwhile initiative.

Jodi is originally from Montréal, Quebec and spent a few years in Northern New Brunswick. She moved to Kamloops in the Spring of 2010 with her family and works as an educational assistant. Her 6 and 8 year old keep her really busy as they love exploring the area and enjoying what Kamloops has to offer!
