BOSTON, MA—April 6, 2018—MFA Film is pleased to present Partners, a film by contemporary photographer Henry Horenstein, whose work can be found in the MFA exhibition “(un)expected families.” The film will screen on May 12 at 12:30 pm, followed by a discussion with director Henry Horenstein.


Directed by Henry Horenstein (USA, 2017, 60 min.). Digital.

This fascinating documentary incorporates clips from 13 interviews with couples who discuss how they met and how their relationships work. Some of the relationships captured here are fairly conventional, while others are wildly unorthodox. But these couples share much in common with each other—their tastes, personal philosophies, dreams for the future, and, most importantly, their love. At its heart, Partners is about acceptance and a celebration of choice.

Screening link available after May 2.
