Raising Renee was filmed over 6 years and is about painter Beverly McIver and her promise to her mother Ethel. She made a promise to her Mom that she would take care of her Intellectually and Developmentally Disabled sister Renee. After her mother passed from cancer, it was time for her to fulfill her promise.
Raising Renee is a drama with humor and also some unexpected twists. I have seen the trailer and also read about the film which is produced and directed by the husband and wife team, Steven Ascher and Jeanne Jordan. It looks like it will be a very inspirational and a must see documentary! Be sure to check it out on HBO2 Wednesday February 22nd at 8 PM.
