Su Friedrich's TODAY opens MARCH 17TH at DCTV’s Firehouse Cinema for Documentary Film.
Q&As with Director Su Friedrich on Mar 17 + 19. Su Friedrich will also be in attendance on Mar 18, 22, 23.
Su Friedrich is a pioneering queer filmmaker who has been making ground-breaking personal films for decades. In Today, she again eschews conventional narrative, observing her world over a six-year period. Choice morsels of documentary footage from the neighborhood of Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn and beyond are augmented with her wry observations and witty on-screen text in this casual, engrossing portrait of daily life. Friedrich thought that using her camera to ‘live in the moment’ would give her access to seeing the wonders of the world, but instead she saw exactly what was in front of her, both the devastating and the uplifting.
Select short films by Su Friedrich will precede screenings of TODAY, including GENTLY DOWN THE STREAM, RULES OF THE ROAD, SEEING RED, THE HEAD OF A PIN, FIRST COMES LOVE.
TICKETS ARE ON SALE NOW. See DCTV's website for more on selected shorts by Friedrich: https://tr.ee/xBF4tX2JI8
"A virtuoso of clarity, Friedrich recasts the personal as political, makes the public curiously intimate.” — Manohla Dargis, The Village Voice
