Directed by Sara Lamm

United States 2017 88 mins. In English

Documentary filmmaker Sara Lamm learned as an adult that she was conceived via sperm donor, a fact that led her down an eleven-years path to (maybe) find her biological father. Charting her path as she takes twelve DNA tests, searches five ancestry databases, identifies one potential half sister, and locates 900 sixth-cousins, THANK YOU FOR COMING is both a genealogical detective story and a funny, bittersweet meditation on love, loss and family.

We are delighted that Sara Lamm will join us for the film’s post-film Q&A and reception.

Patron tickets & passes include reserved seating and access to a post-film reception with filmmakers and/or other special guests. Hors d’oeuvres, wine, and beer will be served after the film.
