In some parts of the world, children whose parents are sent to prison and who lack other guardians are locked away along with their parents. This eyeopening documentary tells the story of what it means for a child to grow up in prison and what hope exists for a better life. “Waiting for Mamu” follows internationally-lauded social worker and 2012 CNN Hero of the Year award-winner Pushpa Basnet, founder of a development center for children who would otherwise grow up behind bars in her native Nepal. This screening will be followed by an extended Q&A. In Person: Director Thomas Morgan; Pushpa Basnet.
