Connections between grandmothers & their granddaughters
In this gorgeous film, you can see how the closeness of grandmothers and their adult granddaughters can play an important role, providing a degree of separation — a confident as it where — from more immediate family members such as siblings or parents. The film also shows the importance and real emotional value of an intergenerational connection and that we have many, many experiences in common, if we just asked each other. Maybe this is another good reason to value mixed age communities where young people can find the generation after their parents to confide in?
