ONLINE SCREENING In Judy Blume Forever, Emmy-winning filmmakers Davina Pardo and Leah Wolchok trace the journey of the beloved author from a fearful, imaginative child to a storytelling pioneer who captivated millions, to one of the country’s most banned writers waging an ongoing war against censorship. Blume’s radical candor about puberty and sexuality has comforted kids and teens across generations and borders, helping them discover their bodies and validating their emotions. Lauding the magic and awkwardness of youth, the film examines Blume’s profound impact, featuring intimate conversations with pop culture icons and sharing letters from decades-long correspondence with her fans. Running time: 1 hour 37 minutes.
This online screening was available in the United States, US Territories and Canada.
Closed Captions are available for the conversation.
There was also an in-person screening on Wednesday, May 31 at the IFC Center (323 Sixth Avenue, New York, NY) followed by the same Q&A that played with the online screening.
