Between Friends & Family (68 min)
In 2008, Mel and Carey asked their neighbor, Rick, to help them start a family. They planned to alternate the birth mom role and eventually have two children, and they were looking for someone willing to be a donor for both pregnancies. Rick agreed and began documenting their evolving relationship, a project that four years later became a personal documentary that explores boundaries and the gray area between friends and family.
