One of my personal favorite things about the Festival is receiving all of the great news from filmmakers about various releases of their films after the Festival closes. We’re happy to share with you that the documentary A Journey in My Mother’s Footsteps, a 2011 official selection opens in Los Angeles this Friday at the Laemmle Sunset 5 in New York on December 2 exclusively at the Quad Cinema! Don’t live in LA or NYC? We’re hearing a buzz that more cities might follow!
First time filmmaker Dina Rosenmeier lovingly chronicles the life of her 75- year old mother, Jessie Rosenmeier. Jessie’s life has been an extraordinary one dedicated to the education, safety and quality of life of thousands of children around the globe primarily in third world impoverished countries. This film is exactly that. Inspirational and uplifting, the film and Jessie’s life exemplify the power of one and the value of caring for one another.
We hope that you can make it to one of these premieres for the film to keep the conversation about this film going!
