Supporting Women in Film


OPENING FILM "SHIVA BABY" (USA)

OCT.6 - 7PM @ KINO MOVIEMENTO


Shiva Baby is a darkly playful comedy of unease 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, hilarious and unforgettable.


Emma Seligman is a Canadian film director/screenwriter. "Shiva Baby" is her feature directorial debut!

Filmed in black and white and with a hybrid structure that interweaves fiction, essay, and real events, evoking earlier poetic and reflective art-
