Description

An inspiring and enlightening film about motherhood, First Comes Love shares director Nina Davenport’s journey to become a mother, on her own, at the age of 41. Following the birth of her niece she yearns for a baby of her own, and documents her journey into a new and non-traditional mode of parenthood. Faced with challenges and hurdles along the way, Davenport’s resilience and humility pull her through complications and adversity as she experiences life as a single mother in the bustling city of New York. First Comes Love is a frank portrait of how the modern family model is being re-imagined, but it’s Nina’s humour and intimacy with the viewer that makes this film so special. Robin Smith, Hot Docs

Director Nina Davenport will participate in a Skype Q&A on Friday, January 31, at 8:45 p.m.
