Holly Morris is an author, documentarian, and the host of PBS’s Adventure Divas, but it’s her work as producer, director, and writer of The Babushkas of Chernobyl that brings her to The Clyde October 23 at 1 PM.

The movie started as an article she wrote to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the explosion at the nuclear power plant, and grew into something much larger. Following three women of a small group that has returned to their homes after the disaster, The Babushkas of Chernobyl tells a story of the call of home and the subjective nature of risk, one that is both rousing and haunting. Audiences from the LA Film Festival (where Holly won the Jury Award for Directing) to today have fallen in love with The Babushkas, and now you have a chance to do so too.

The Babushkas of Chernobyl plays at 1 PM on Sunday, October 23. Holly Morris will talk about the process of discovering, developing, and filming the story, and answer questions afterwards. Admission is $7, or just $5 for those under 17 or over 65, and the box office will open at 12:30.
