In 1961, artist Camille Billops made a painful decision: to put her 4-year-old daughter, Christa, up for adoption. In “Finding Christa,” Billops is both filmmaker and subject as she tells the story of their separation and ultimate reconciliation. The documentary is an original and personal film that challenges societal biases about adoption and offers new insight on mother-daughter relationships. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition “Stony the Road We Trod.” 1991, NR, 55 min.
