My Mamily

My Mamily is a short animated film about the struggles and triumphs of a lesbian family as seen through the eyes of a child. It is a reflection of how children are born non-judgmental and how adults, schools, and other institutions are responsible for raising children who are accepting of difference. My Mamily provides a peek into diverse kinds of families and how above everything, love is what makes a family.
