Description

Look At Us Now, Mother! documents a highly charged mother-daughter relationship’s transition from Mommie Dearest to Dear Mom, from hatred to love, with the daughter (Emmy award-winning filmmaker, Gayle Kirschenbaum) behind the camera. Comprised primarily of intimate family home movies and videos—from 8 mm film coverage of Gayle’s outwardly “Leave it to Beaver-esque” childhood in an upwardly-mobile Long Island suburb, from personal celebrations to fights, and even tragedies, leading right up to the present. With raw courage and equal parts humor and pathos, Gayle invites the audience on her quest to understand, forgive and love her aging mother before it's too late. As these two formidable women travel down the bumpy road of discovery, their relationship changes before our eyes and teaches us a universal lesson: the power of forgiveness.
