GREENSBORO, N.C. — The University of North Carolina at Greensboro’s MFA Media Studies students will present thesis works as part of their requirements for the program on May 5, 7-9 p.m., at the Weatherspoon Auditorium. A pre-screening reception begins at 6 p.m.

“Between Friends and Family,” a documentary by Dir. Rick Dillwood, tells the story about a lesbian family and their sperm donor.

Discussion follows the films.

Dillwood was previously an eighth grade English teacher. He has also directed other works, such as “How to Make a Heartbeat,” which was premiered at the San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival in 2010. Its narrative followed a lesbian couple and their donor while they worked out the boundaries of their relationship.
