USA | 2020 | dir. Emma Seligman, with Rachel Sennott, Molly Gordon, Polly Draper

Over the course of one climactic day-long shiva, a Jewish gathering of friends and family during a time of mourning, Danielle finds herself hilariously in the company of her ex-girlfriend, her sugar daddy and his wife. Struggling to keep up appearances, Danielle grapples with tradition and independence in this darling, nail-biting comedy. A highlight of 2020’s Toronto International Film Festival and SXSW, the film features a standout lead performance from emerging actor-comedian Rachel Sennott.

The screening on 9 June (8.30pm) will be followed by a Q&A with director Emma Seligman
