Refrigerator Mothers airs tonight at 10pm in Chicago on WTTW11 PBS as part of their celebration of Kartemquin's 45th anniversary. Watch a new video introduction to the film from producers JJ Hanley and David E. Simpson on why they wanted to tell this story, and what they learned from looking into the history of "mother blame" connected to autism.
With a noted tradition of nurturing emerging talent and acting as a leading voice for independent media, Kartemquin is building on more than 50 years of history as Chicago’s documentary powerhouse.
