A Blue Morning: Conversations Among Artists on Parenthood
The Latest • Documentary, Short Films, 12-Jan-2023
The lives of a group of thirty-something artists weave together as they grapple with the idea of parenthood. Allegra Oxborough directs “A Blue Morning: Conversations Among Artists on Parenthood,” a slice-of-life documentary following two couples with kids, and a third contemplating a family. Captured with remarkable intimacy, the film is a quiet rumination on art, child-rearing, sacrifice, fear, and acceptance. Juggling a host of parental responsibilities, the couples reckon with their past, present, and future in their respective fields of artistic pursuit, music and dance. It’s no-frills but honest, a portrait that moves in ripples, gently growing in scope as it moves from couple to couple. We previously featured Oxborough’s 2018 docu-fiction drama, “Distance,” a similarly straightforward exploration of a long-distance relationship. -KA.
