Mary Trunk debuts film Lost in Living


Mary Trunk has a new documentary out and it is now available to stream on Kanopy.

Behind the domestic curtain of motherhood, where the creative impulse can flourish or languish, are four women determined to make a go of it. Filmed over seven years, LOST IN LIVING, confronts the contradictions inherent in personal ambition and self-sacrifice, female friendship and mental isolation, big projects and dirty dishes. The complex realities of family life unfold in this documentary film about the messy intersection of motherhood and artistic expression.

Mary is a Los Angeles-based artist and teaches the class From Still to Motion at ArtCenter.
