The Lincoln Theatre and Chinook Enterprises present Far From the Tree, a film and discussion. Far From the Tree follows families meeting extraordinary challenges through love, empathy, and understanding. This life-affirming documentary encourages us to cherish loved ones for all they are, not who they might have been. Based on Andrew Solomon's award-winning, critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling non-fiction book "Far From the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity."
Director: Rachel Dretzin
"Far from the Tree takes a piercingly thoughtful look at the family dynamic that makes its points -- and earns its tears -- honestly." - Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes
“At its most radical and empathetic, "Far From the Tree" urges us to start thinking of disability in terms of identity, not as a locus of struggle but a place of being.” - Ann Hornaday Washington Post
“Enormously affecting." - Bob Mondello, NPR's All Things Considered.
