Shiva Baby + Recorded Q&A
Director: Emma Seligman;
Starring: Rachel Sennott, Molly Gordon, Polly Draper, Diana Agron;
Release Date: Fri 11 Jun 2021
Shiva Baby is a darkly playful comedy of chaos about a young bisexual woman grappling with tradition and independence over the course of one climactic day-long shiva, a Jewish gathering of friends and family during a time of mourning.
A highlight of 2020’s Toronto International Film Festival and SXSW, and featuring a standout lead performance from emerging actor-comedian Rachel Sennott, the acclaimed feature debut from writer-director Emma Seligman is bold, modern filmmaking at its most daring, and hilarious, co-starring Dianna Agron, Fred Melamed and Polly Draper.
The screening will be followed by a pre-recorded Q&A with director Emma Seligman and journalist Amelia Abraham.
