Filmmaker Rachel Tracey talks about meeting the subject of her documentary “A Grumpy Old Man,” and why collecting clocks makes sense after that moment in your life when time stood still.
I remember my grandma fondly. She was sweet and caring, but a prickly old lady at times. But she was never this damn funny…
Jesse Selwyn, grandson and director of “NJ Lady,” talks to Rooftop about why his grandmother is funnier than yours.
The film consists entirely of objects, and yet it’s surprisingly touching, revealing the character behind it and all the moments, people and places that make up a life. Because of the visual detail, if you saw this film at Rooftop, it’s worth a second, slower look in full screen mode.
Rooftop Films’ 14th Summer Series runs weekends from May 14-August 20. This year we will be screening 28 feature-length films and over 100 short films.
