This deeply personal portrait of acclaimed New York–based artist Ida Applebroog was shot with mischievous reverence by her filmmaker daughter, Beth B. Born in the Bronx to Orthodox Jewish émigrés from Poland, Applebroog, now in her 80s, looks back at how she expressed herself through decades of drawings and paintings, as well as her private journals. With her daughter’s encouragement, she investigates the stranger that is her former self, a woman who found psychological and sexual liberation through art. 

Screens with local short film Enough (2016) by Taouba Khelifa.

Includes an exhibition by Edmonton artist Jennie Vegt in the lobby, and a Q&A following the screening.


This screening is part of the larger thematic series:
