Love & Stuff
Dir. Judith Helfand | 78 min
Documentary USA 2020
Seven months after her mother’s passing, filmmaker Judith Helfand becomes a mother herself at 50 years old. Overnight, she’s pushed to deal with the “stuff” her mother left behind: 63 boxes of heirlooms and judgements on her weight loss. Told in the first person through 25 years of family footage, Love & Stuff explores the transformative power of parenting, our complex and very emotional attachment to “stuff,” and what we really need to leave our children.
