Ninety minutes of songs about life and quips about death from the wheelchair of Carla Zilbersmith who vows to exit laughing. Once a nationally-known singer/comedienne, now fated by ALS, remarkable Carla leaves a teen-aged son, fans who adore her, and this 90-minute pre-mortem retrospective of a life lived fully but too fast.
John Zaritsky, Oscar-winning director of the film, will be on Shaw Urban Rush March 3rd. I definitely recommend tuning in!
Hey! Do you speak German? Good! You should check out this awesome article on http://ahorntv.com/ on February 14th, 2011. This is an article about Mass Abedis Berlin's interview with WIFF-Board member Alexandra Georgi and her conversation with Montana Berg regarding Leave them Laughing at the Women in Film festival in Vancouver!
I, unfortunately, do not speak the language, but I know in my heart that it is an excellent article!
