WISDOM GONE WILD
NYC PREMIERE A meticulous documenting of the filmmaker’s mother as she gradually slips into the grip of dementia. Rea Tajiri is both a witness and a participant in a process of remembrance and archiving; throughout this moving collaboration, the mother and daughter switch roles between daughter, mother, survivor, and documentarian. Without falling into the trappings of nostalgia, the film meditates on life, time, and love, while confronting a monumental loss. – Bedatri Choudhury
The first screening will be followed by a Q&A with Rea Tajiri, Sian Evans, editor Catherine Hollander, sound re-recording engineer Gisela Fulla-Silvestra
