Love & Stuff

Year
2020
Country

Duration
79’
Director
Judith Helfand
Seven months after helping her terminally ill mother to have a ‘good death’ in a home-hospice, filmmaker Judith Helfand becomes a ‘new old’ single mother at 50. Overnight, she’s pushed to deal with her ‘stuff’: 63 boxes of her parent’s heirlooms, which overwhelm her office-turned-future-baby room, the weight her mother had begged her to lose, and the reality of being a half-century older than her daughter. Told in the first person, in deep consultation with the past — as in 25 years of family footage — Love & Stuff explores the transformative power of parenting, our complex and very emotional attachment to ‘stuff’, and what it is we really need to leave our children.
