IndieCollect Shorts 3

Q&A with Directors Nancy Schreiber and Amalie R. Rothschild

IndieCollect is a film preservation organization founded by Sandra Schulberg in 2010 to save and restore independent film. As part of Restored & Rediscovered, we are featuring a number of shorts that IndieCollect helped preserve. These are works that don’t often screen in theaters.

Possum Living (Nancy Schreiber. 30m. 1980): Nancy Schreiber’s Possum Living was hailed by the New York Times when it premiered at MoMA’s New Directors series. Schreiber went on to become one of America’s few successful women DPs – most recently with the hit TV series P-Valley – but she was never given another chance to direct a movie. The short follows author Dolly Freed as she explains her philosophy of living a sustainable lifestyle.
Painting the Town: The Illusionistic Murals of Richard Hass (Amalie R. Rothschild. 56m. 1990): Rothschild fashions her own exuberant film mural based on the life and very public work of the celebrated architectural muralist Richard Haas, whose trompe l’oeuil artistry transforms cityscapes in ways that confound and delight. Nancy Schreiber collaborated with Amalie R. Rothschild on the film as her director of photography.
It Happens to Us (Amalie R. Rothschild. 30m. 1972): Made in 1971 by an all-woman crew, women who are rich and poor, young and older, black and white, married and unmarried, tell dramatic stories about why and how they ended their pregnancies when abortion was still illegal.
