The film premiered at Sheffield DocFest on Saturday June, 5. You can read an excerpt below and the whole feature on Screen Queens.
In many ways, the film itself is testament to that impulse to draw closer to what scares you as opposed to turning away. It is a burning, heartfelt, hilarious and at times heart-breaking account of one woman’s life, and simultaneously a mobilisation of female anger, agency and kinship. Beth never walks away from a film she’s made – “most of the projects I’ve done resonate with me so personally that I live them continually. It’s a kind of moving catharsis. The film continues to live on beyond my making, through the audience and through the discussions it provokes.”
It is a striking observation that goes to prove that, as much in art as it is in life, the war is truly never over.
