Terry’s Picks: May 28
ARVE Error: need id and provider

Check out: Frances Ha, directed by Noah Baumbach and co-written by Baumbach and Greta Gerwig, who also plays the lead. First off, it’s black and white, which is always a treat; and secondly, Gerwig gives a great performance in a complex and funny woman-centered story.

Looking forward to: The Killing, starting up again on AMC next week. In its last two seasons, the show hired more women directors than any other show on television.

Terry Lawler is the Executive Director of NYWIFT. Tune in every Tuesday for her picks of the week.

NYWIFT @ Tribeca: In Conversation with Filmmaker Signe Baumane

Signe Baumane’s "My Love Affair With Marriage" is a brilliant animated film for a decidedly adult audience. It’s a semi-autobiographical musical exploration of love, sex, romance, and gender as viewed through the lens of neurochemistry – not your average animated love story! New York Women in Film & Television was proud to present Baumane with a NYWIFT Ravenal Foundation Feature Film Grant for the film, and even prouder to then see it premiere at the 2022 Tribeca Festival! We sat down with Signe to discuss her wildly inventive, intelligent, and very fun film.
