Brooklyn Roses (2016)
1h 15min · Drama · 1 January 2016
Brooklyn Roses, was shot over a twenty-year period, with the same actors playing the same characters as they age. Family members played by actors in the narrative appear in documentary footage as themselves. After her mother's death, the filmmaker clears out the family house, including her own youthful super-8 films, boxes of old family photos and her mother's paintings. The scripted narrative about the filmmaker's childhood and teenage years in the 1950's and 1960's takes place in the same house and is interwoven with contemporary documentary footage as she sorts through her family drama, the changing role of women and the unfinished nature of film, life and history.
