An Interview with Daresha Kyi – Film Producer of Momma Bears movie
Mama Bears is a feature-length documentary that explores the many ways in which the lives of conservative, Christian mothers are impacted and utterly transformed when they decide to affirm and advocate on behalf of their LGBTQ children.
Most recently Daresha co-directed and co-produced her first feature documentary, Chavela, with Emmy nominated filmmaker Catherine Gund. Chavela celebrates the wild, rollercoaster life of badass singer Chavela Vargas, who jumped onstage wearing pants, a poncho, and a pistol, smoked cigars, and drank tequila while she boldly sang love songs to women in the early 1950s in very conservation, macho Mexico. The film was nominated for the Teddy award and won the 2nd place Panorama Audience Award at the 2017 Berlinale, as well as Best Documentary and Audience Awards at Outfest and the San Francisco LGBTQ Film Festival. Chavela is on Netflix.
