HERE ONE DAY
KATHY LEICHTER / DOCUMENTARY / USA / ENGLISH /76 MIN / MENTAL ILLNESS
When filmmaker Kathy Leichter moved back into her childhood home after her mother’s suicide, she discovered a hidden box of audiotapes. Sixteen years passed before she had the courage to delve into this trove, unearthing details that her mother had recorded about every aspect of her life from the challenges of her marriage to a State Senator, to her son’s estrangement, to her struggles with bipolar disorder.
Speaker: Kathy Leichter, Film Director
