More about Bittersweet: 

Katie Bourgeois, filmmaker, documents the story of Carla Beatrice, a north shore artist and organizer of the Survivor Nest Project. Taking place over the course of two years, The Survivor Nest Project was a transformational healing arts project for survivors of incest and childhood sexual abuse. Bourgeois follows Beatrice as she builds a giant life sized nest with Debbie Baxter of the Nest Project and then moves it to her backyard, inviting others to be nurtured. Beatrice then brought this collaborative passion project and healing programming/exhibit to Salem the following spring.

"Bittersweet is a film that follows the cathartic healing journey of 7 survivors of sexual abuse through the process of building a life-sized nest from local vines and then being photographed within the nest. The film captures the essence and experience of this journey through the beautiful slow rhythmic use of the natural surroundings, light and sounds present during the process.  The film has an interspersed narrative thread of Carla speaking about the project to bring perspective to the experience." - review from 2022 premiere viewing
