Conversations at the Edge: SU FRIEDRICH - TODAY


THEATER 1 Thu, Sep 7, 2023 8:30 PM


Friedrich’s latest feature, TODAY, is a luminous personal essay on beauty, love, and loss. Endeavoring to live by and also question the maxim to “live in the moment,” Friedrich turns her camera to the world immediately in front of her: a neighborhood barbeque, a bucolic vacation, the brilliance of flowers—both natural and artificial—and the consecutive losses of loved ones. Hoping to ground herself in the everyday, the filmmaker finds herself increasingly contemplative, as memories and devastating experiences make claim to her limited time.
