SNAPSHOTS - written and produced by Jan Miller Corran | Directed by Melanie Mayron
Audience Q & A to follow screening with Emily Goss (Actress)
Three women, three mysteries- the past, present and future collide one weekend at the lake.
Three generations convey an intimate story of love lost, love found and love everlasting. Matriarch Rose (Piper Laurie) has made her Table Rock Lake house her home for over fifty years. When daughter Patty (Brooke Adams) and granddaughter Allison (Emily Baldoni) arrive with an old found camera and the surprise developed roll of fifty-year-old film to share, Rose is transported back to the early 1960’s when Louise and Zee entered her and husband Joe’s life.
Subtle, poignant, and thought-provoking, Snapshots explores love in ways that leave one laughing, crying and renewed
WRITER, PRODUCER STATEMENT:
"It is an honor to have SNAPSHOTS as the closing night film at Female Eye Film Festival. This will be our Canadian Premiere. Given the direction by Melanie Mayron, our 75% female cast, and the profound story of three generations of women, we could not have asked for a better festival in which to unveil our film. Based on a true story, SNAPSHOTS has been a labor of love for me as the writer and producer." - JAN MILLER CORRAN, CEO, Three Women in a Box Films
"Snapshots is a film I very much wanted to see made. It is a film about love. The complexity of love, who we love, how we choose someone to love, how that affects the path of our lives, and how that path becomes our destiny, and in the end, our legacy. All we have is our life. Our one small, gigantic life amongst so many in the world. But what unites us all as humans, is the experience of love. That experience, if we are lucky enough to experience it, of being swept away by the knowing of a partner, a soul mate is the most breathtaking of experiences. And then there is the time we are born into, the social mores at that time of our life experience. "Snapshots" visits the same experience in two different time/spaces, fifty years apart. It is a heartbreaking and yet revelatory story about love and time.
I am so very proud of the cast and crew we assembled to do the project and the work that was done. Because in the end, with this particular film, to everyone who contributed to it, it was this particular story about this particular love, and this particular family, that everyone felt needed to be told." - MELANIE MAYRON, DIRECTOR
