I NEVER SAID I WASN’T HAPPY


I NEVER SAID I WASN'T HAPPY is Chicago painter and filmmaker Sara Peak Convery's candid personal examination of complex family dynamics and her parents' difficult marriage. Through a lively mix of interviews, paintings, home movies and family photographs dating back to the late 1950s, the film paints an unflinching portrait of a rural Midwestern family by a daughter of the Midwest.


When Sara was three years old, she reportedly asked her mother: "why do we live with this man?" The man in question was her father. Reflecting the restrictive gender roles of an earlier era, the documentary reveals how Sara's mother finally blossoms in widowhood, reclaiming her own identity after the death of her husband.


With Sara Peak Convery and her mother Janis S. Peak in person! 


Co-presented with Evanston’s Aging Well Conference.
