John Tweedy will show and discuss the exciting and surprising film he made about his mother, Penny Chenery.

Making a film about his mother meant deciding what to include in a story that is also his own. John Tweedy will show his documentary film, Penny and Red: The Life of Secretariat’s Owner, a profile of the amazing woman who transformed herself from Denver housewife into “The First Lady of Racing.” Her personal story exemplifies the rise of women of her generation. Based on a series of intimate conversations, the film is a stunningly honest account of Penny’s life, made poignant by her unsparing self-reflection.
