Coming to PBS’s POV tonight, Monday, September 5:

Judith Helfand

David Cohen

World Premiere:
Hot Docs 2020

Select Festivals:
DOC NYC, New York Jewish, Docudays UA

Faced with the loss of her beloved mother and becoming a first-time mom herself, the filmmaker has a lot of stuff to deal with.

The film screened at DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
In less than a year, filmmaker Judith Helfand goes through two major life moments: losing her beloved mother, Florence, and becoming a mom herself. As Judith prepares to welcome her adopted daughter, Theo, into her life, she must deal with literal and figurative “stuff:” endless boxes of her parents’ belongings, the promise she made to Florence to lose weight, reckoning with first-time motherhood at the age of 50, and moving on without her mother to help guide her.
