Su Friedrich in person

Su Friedrich is a pioneering queer filmmaker who has been making ground-breaking personal films for decades. The first video in the program, I Cannot Tell You How I Feel, is a heartfelt examination of growing old today, and the responsibility of adult children to their parents (2016, digital, 42 minutes). In the next video, Today, Friedrich observes her world over a six-year period. It’s a time that includes a country vacation and a city cookout, the loss of loved ones, and the spread of a pandemic—plus the brightness of flowers, both real and fake. (2022, digital, 57 minutes)
