The Baltimore Women’s Film Festival (“BWFF”) will screen over 100 films, and host a number of exciting festival-related activities, from Thursday, October 23rd and Sunday, October 26th.

The BWFF 2008 is pleased to announce, among its festival-related activities, a special book signing and sushi reception with acclaimed actress, playwright and breast cancer survivor Lynn Redgrave, and her daughter, photographer Annabel Clark. The book signing and reception will take place after the screening at RA Sushi, 1390 Lancaster Street on Friday, October 24th.
The signing/ sushi reception will follow immediately after the World Premiere screening of the film Beyond Breast Cancer: Stories of Survivors. Beyond Breast Cancer, which starts at 2 PM and runs 63 minutes long at Landmark’s Harbor East, highlights the experiences of nine courageous, women who survive breast cancer - only to discover that their health struggles continue even after their cancer treatment ends. This film, directed by Vivian Umino and produced by Saskia Karen Subramanian, was funded by the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
All those who attend the Beyond Breast Cancer film screening will, in addition to our VIP pass holders, be welcome to attend the sushi reception and book signing with Redgrave and Clark at RA Sushi after the film. At the reception, both Redgrave and Clark will be available to sign copies of their collaborative work, Journal: A Mother and Daughter’s Recovery from Breast Cancer, which narrates—through photos and print—their shared battle with Redgrave’s breast cancer, chemotherapy treatments, surgery, and beyond. The reception is generously sponsored by RA Sushi, which will provide both delicious food and drinks gratis, from 3:30 to 4:30, to our guests.
Journal: A Mother and Daughter’s Recovery uniquely illuminates their story through thirty-seven intimate photographs which Clark took, along with Redgrave’s journal entries about her experience. Redgrave, an avid diarist since the age of five, is perhaps better known as a highly acclaimed actress and film star from a world-famous family of actors (Redgrave, along with sister Vanessa and brother Corin, descend from five generations of celebrated thespians). Redgrave’s film and stage credits include two Golden Globes, an Oscar nomination, two Tony nominations, an Outer Critics Circle Award, and an Obie. Also an accomplished playwright, she has authored the plays Shakespeare for My Father,The Mandrake Root, and Nightingale.
Copies of Redgrave’s and Clark’s Journal: A Mother and Daughter’s Recovery may be purchased in advance by October 16th at the BWFF website. Direct purchase link is here: http://www.bwfilmfestival.com/8.html <http://www.bwfilmfestival.com/8.html> .
