TAHARA Director, Olivia Peace, Writer, Jess Zeidman, and Actress, Madeline Grey DeFreece, Up Next on the SOUNDS OF FILM

In this acerbic teen comedy, a funeral becomes a battleground between best friends Carrie Lowstein (Madeline Grey DeFreece) and Hannah Rosen (Rachel Sennott, breakout star of SHIVA BABY). When their former Hebrew school classmate commits suicide, the two girls attend her funeral as well as the "Teen Talk-back" session hosted by their synagogue, designed to be an opportunity for them to understand grief through Judaism. Hannah, more interested in impressing her crush Tristan (Daniel Taveras), convinces Carrie to practice kissing with her, unlocking feelings that turn Carrie's world upside down. Emotions heightened, the scene develops into a biting depiction of unrequited crushes, toxic friendships, and wavering faith, which ComingSoon calls "one of the most original films in the coming-of-age subgenre in a long time."
TAHARA was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Slamdance and Winner of the Award for Best Directorial Feature Debut of a Black LGBTQ+ Filmmaker at NewFest 2020, and Special Mention at L.A. OutFest. TAHARA was also an Official Selection at the Toronto International Film Festival and the New York Jewish Film Festival.

FANNY: THE RIGHT TO ROCK Director Bobbi Jo Hart Up Next on Tom Needham’s SOUNDS OF FILM

From director Bobbi Jo Hart (REBELS ON POINTE), FANNY: THE RIGHT TO ROCK, winner of the Rogers Audience Choice Award at Hot Docs, charts the group’s formation, their rise, fall, and more recent reformation 50 years after their founding with a new album release, and covers the misogyny, bigotry and other roadblocks they faced along the way. Featuring incredible archival footage of the band's rocking past intercut with its next chapter releasing a new LP today, the film includes interviews with a large cadre of music icons, including Def Leppard's Joe Elliott, Bonnie Raitt, The Go-Go's Kathy Valentine, Todd Rundgren, The Runaways' Cherie Currie, Lovin' Spoonful's John Sebastian, The B52's Kate Pierson, Charles Neville and David Bowie guitarist and bassist Earl Slick and Gail Ann Dorsey. Fighting early barriers of race, gender and sexuality in the music industry, and now ageism, the incredible women of Fanny are ready to claim their hallowed place in the halls of rock 'n' roll fame.

The program airs Thursday, June 2 from 6-8 PM.
