Event Description

An on-set photograph taken during the filming of “Dear Mom" shows the artist in the center leading a group of child actors hand-in-hand. A videographer with camera equipment is just ahead of them, walking backwards as the group moves forward.
“Dear Mom,” 2023. Music by Pax Ressler and John Jarboe. John Jarboe, in collaboration with The Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia. The Rose Garden, 2024. Photo credit: Carlos Avendaño.

Join the cast of “Dear Mom” for a celebration of the film collaboration between John Jarboe and FWM. Inspired by The Sound of Music’s “Do-Re-Me,” “Dear Mom” is described by the artist as "a sing-a-long healing ritual for trans folx that uses cinematic fantasy to imagine what it would feel like if our parents and guardians believe us when we tell them who we are."

The event will feature composer Pax Ressler, actors from the film, and members of the Philadelphia Girls Choir.

Organized in conjunction with John Jarboe: The Rose Garden
