Look at us now mother (2015)

1h 14m | English | Gayle Kirschenbaum

The story of determined woman’s quest to reconcile with and understand her past, which means forgiving her proud, narcissistic and formidable elderly mother, Mildred. Emmy award-winning filmmaker Gayle Kirschenbaum is determined to unlock the key to her family’s pain and crack open her mother’s brittle shell. 


When Mildred grudgingly agrees to participate in the process, the two of them uncover shocking family secrets and long-buried suffering that throw their family history into sharp relief, and begin to shift the dynamics of their complex relationship… 


A relentlessly honest, bitingly funny film.
