Film Presentation: Tip of My Tongue by Lynne Sachs

Event information
Venue:Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU

TIP OF MY TONGUE 80 min. color, 2017

Directed by Lynne Sachs

To celebrate her 50th birthday, filmmaker Lynne Sachs gathered a diverse group of men and women who lived through precisely the same years to spend a weekend with her making a movie. Together, they discuss some of the most salient, strange and revealing moments of their lives in a brash, self-reflective examination of the way in which uncontrollable events outside our own domestic universe impact who we are. They move from the Vietnam War protests to the Anita Hill hearings to the Columbine Shootings to Occupy Wall Street.

" In Tip of My Tongue, the past is unearthed, turned over and reconsidered in new and astonishing ways. To mark her 50th birthday, filmmaker Lynne Sachs gathers a group of her contemporaries—all New Yorkers but originally hailing from all corners of the globe—for a weekend of recollection and reflection on the most life-altering personal, local, and international events of the past half-century, creating a collective distillation of their times. Interspersed with poetry and flashes of archival footage, this poignant reverie reveals how far beyond our control life is, and how far we can go despite this.” Kathy Brew, Museum of Modern Art
