And here's a film maker I was able to contact and interview via Skype. Her film was already on my list to see, but now I want to see it even more.
It's only showed publicly twice - both in Molly's native Canada. Sunday afternoon will be the US premiere. Actually, the outside of Canada, World Premiere.
"Given Your History" is about two sisters who get together some time after their mom has died of cancer and they are considering their own danger from cancer "given their history." Molly points out that she didn't want to do another film about someone who is dying of cancer. Rather, she says, this is a more hopeful look at the aftermath of the cancer on the daughters.
With the festival starting today, these posts are going to get quick and dirty, as I post on the fly, and minimally edit any video I get. Note - this was a Skype video and I was in a coffee shop. And I didn't mean to record the little window with me in it, but it's done and time's getting tight. Also, the video is a little dodgy because the Skype connection wasn't terrific
Here's the schedule for this film from Festival Genius. It plays in the Global Village narrative shorts program which has three other shorts that are 'in competition' for awards. [I've done another post on all the short narrative films in competition.]
