LOVE & STUFF
In less than a year, filmmaker Judith Helfand (Cooked: Survival by Zip Code, DOC NYC 2018) goes through two major life moments: losing her beloved mother, Florence, and becoming a mom herself. As Judith prepares to welcome her adopted daughter, Theo, into her life, she must deal with literal and figurative “stuff:” endless boxes of her parents’ belongings, the promise she made to Florence to lose weight, reckoning with first-time motherhood at the age of 50, and moving on without her mother to help guide her.
DOC NYC Live event: Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 3 ET on Facebook Live– Filmmaker Judith Helfand is joined by editors Marina Katz and David Cohen.They will be talking about the collaborative and creative process that went into making LOVE & STUFF, specifically, how and why it takes a “we” to make a first person “I” movie, truly resonant and universal.
