KELLY O'BRIAN Toronto, ON
Postings From Home - Multi-media performance and film screenings July 7
Kelly O’Brien is an independent filmmaker and mother of three who lives in Toronto. Kelly will join us on July 5-7 and will present her Facebook performance and screen her short films at Emerson Hall.
Her film “Softening” won the grand jury prize in the shorts competition at the 2013 DOC NYC festival and appeared in the New York Times online. She recently exhibited her experimental personal narrative “Postings from Home” at the 2016 Images Festival in Toronto. Point of View magazine called it “The real find of the festival… as O’Brien let the audience into her home and mind to experience a mother’s love for her children. Festivalgoers were visibly moved [by…] a revelatory journey through the filmmaker’s intimately illuminating archive.”
