"A backwards trip through the alphabet serves as a brilliant storytelling device for writer-director Su Friedrich to remember and reflect on her father.
One of the most esteemed experimental filmmakers working today, Su Friedrich has won fans at film festivals around the world for the last twenty-plus years.
Lyrical, poetic, passionate and innovative, Su Friedrich's films are among the most rewarding cinematic delicacies you'll ever find, and an exhilarating experience for adventurous audiences weary of the same old conventional lesbian movies. While Friedrich (who happens to be a lesbian) has often made films that are not specifically "about" being a lesbian, she always manages to have a uniquely queer perspective on any topic she tackles. Her filmmaking defies traditional genres, falling to rest in a hybrid genre that incorporates fiction, non-fiction, and so much more.
In case you can't tell, I'm one of her biggest fans. I highly recommend this film to viewers interested in seeing something new and different!"
