Join us for a conversation with director Judith Helfand.
After her mother’s death, award-winning filmmaker Judith Helfand spends months sorting through boxes and belongings. She finds home videos of Jewish holidays, family celebrations and time spent with her mother, Florence. As she struggles to say goodbye, Helfand embarks on a new chapter: adopting a child and embracing single motherhood at 50. Suddenly she must deal with her own “stuff,” clearing out boxes to make space for a child, undergoing gastric sleeve surgery and considering mother-daughter relationships from a new perspective. This is a generous and personal story about triumphant recovery, memories and family.
Judith Helfand is a filmmaker whose films have premiered at Sundance, been broadcast on PBS, HBO and the Sundance Channel. She has received the Sundance Excellence Award in Cinematography, Emmy nominations and a Peabody Award. Helfand co-founded Working Films and Chicken & Egg Pictures. She lives in New York City with her almost 6-year-old daughter Theodora and their betta fish, Maxi Taxi.+ More... - Less...
