        Mimi and Dona | Film Discussion Guide

        This guide is designed as a tool to facilitate dialogue, and deepen understanding of the complex issues in Mimi and Dona, a film that explores themes around caregiving and aging. Mimi and Dona shows a touching relationship between a mother and daughter, and the highs and lows of their life together. Viewers will focus and learn about a pressing social issue—finding appropriate housing and support for this vulnerable population—and foster greater respect and compassion for the families and caregivers of people with disabilities. The guide provides resources and suggestions for areas to take action and to explore.
