Screening and Conversation with Su Friedrich, Filmmaker
Acclaimed filmmaker Su Friedrich takes us inside her family’s uncharted world of aging and severe memory loss. Writes Friedrich, “When my brother, sister, and I found ourselves in that place with our mother. . . our response was to totally freak out, realize we had no idea what needed to be done, and then scramble desperately to figure out which steps to take when.”
Join Friedrich following the screening as she discusses the camera becoming witness to how her family cajoles and comes to terms with moving a parent into the strange new world of assisted living.
