Register Here for SESSION 1 - Wed. Sept. 13th

Why as adults do/did we often become & feel very young around our parents? 

Join us for three films that are about the complex relationships between parents and children- especially adult "children" and their parents. Using fiction and true stories, these films delve into the complexities of adult interactions with and the emotional experience of interacting with their parents.  Each of the three films alone can be looked at as work of art and also raise a host of psychological and moral issues.  All three
films bring even more impact to the topic.

The evening will run from 6-9PM, with the movie showing from 6-8 PM followed by a  lively, informed discussion with the renowned NYU film professor Harry Chotiner. So come for the evening, let the movies be a surprise, and have fun discussing the movies with a renowned film professor and your TTN friends.
Join Us for 1, 2 or All Three Sessions -  A New Exclusive Private Screening  -
Wed. Sept. 13, Tues. Oct. 3, Thurs. Nov. 2
