“Call Her Applebroog” by Beth B is a poignant and intimate portrait of renowned artist, Ida Applebroog, who grew up in an Orthodox Jewish household with an immigrant father who only wanted to have sons; instead there were three girls. It is a cathartic story of self-realization and the act of art-making as a lifesaving parachute.
The film reveals Applebroog’s groundbreaking artwork that has been an enduring enquiry into the polemics of human relations and power. More intimately, it is about her dynamic family relationships – a story that Beth knows well – Ida is her mother.
“Call Her Applebroog” will have its world premiere on Friday February 26, 2016 at the Museum of Modern Art. Ida and Beth will be present at the screening for a Q&A.
Tickets will go on sale two weeks prior to the event
The film is being distributed by Zeitgeist Films.
A theatrical release is being planned for the summer.
