Film Streams and the Meyer Foundation for Disabilities will present a free screening of the documentary "Mimi and Dona" at 7 p.m. March 1 at the Ruth Sokolof Theater.

The film follows the 92-year-old Mimi, who has cared for Dona, her daughter who has an intellectual disability, for 64 years. As Mimi comes to terms with the fact that she won't outlive her daughter, she tries to find Dona a new home.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with parents and family members who have an adult child with a developmental disability.

Though tickets are free, they are limited to two per person. Tickets can be reserved at

The screening and discussion are part of Film Streams' Community Development Program, which fosters collaboration with other nonprofits and community groups on film-related events.
