Parent and Baby Screening

This 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, Danielle struggles to keep up different versions of herself when she runs into her sugar daddy and her ex-girlfriend, all whilst her parents are in uncomfortably close proximity. 

A highlight of 2020’s Toronto International Film Festival and SXSW, and featuring a standout lead performance from emerging actor-comedian Rachel Sennott, this acclaimed feature debut from writer-director Emma Seligman is bold, modern filmmaking at its most daring, and hilarious.

The film comes with an exclusive recorded Q&A with writer-director Emma Seligman, hosted by journalist Milly Abraham
