Working independently as well as commercially as an animator (her company Hubbub Inc. has produced animated sequences for Nickelodeon, Lifetime, and John Cameron Mitchell’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch), Emily Hubley has extended her parents’ legacy. This selection includes the live-action and animation hybrid Set Set Spike (2002), where a single mother’s personal rituals combine her history, poetry, and volleyball; The Tower (1984), made in collaboration with her sister Georgia; and Her Grandmother’s Gift (1995), featuring the sound of Faith Hubley discussing past and present attitudes toward menstruation, with music by Georgia Hubley and Ira Kaplan (of Yo La Tengo), and more. Total running time approximately 70 minutes
