The Red Deere Museum
Produced by: Lynda Shorten
In the summer of 1998, a museum in central Alberta mounted an exhibit of wedding dresses. The dresses had been sewn over the course of a lifetime by a woman who worked from her basement, creating gowns for the brides of her community. The exhibit was organized by the seamstress's daughter, as a tribute to her mother and to the uncelebrated work of rural women. But there was a lot going on behind the scenes at this exhibit. The daughter, an urban feminist with a doctorate in sociology, was trying to come to terms with what she saw as her mother's sacrifices and unfulfilled life. And the mother was trying to understand the daughter's anger and pain, and wrestling with her own pain at her daughter's harsh judgment. Producer Linda Shorten of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation shares a story of the forces that have driven generations of women apart, and how those women have struggled to find their way back to each other again. This program is part of our international documentary exchange series, Crossing Boundaries.
