On Wednesday Nov 8th, Valerie Harper, Susie Singer Carter, Liz Torres and the cast of the critically acclaimed short film “My Mom and the Girl” (www.mymomandthegirl.com) gathered for a special Academy screening in the ballroom of world famous Hollywood Museum (located in the historic Max Factor Building).
The profound experience created by museum Founder and President, Donelle Dadigan, was the ultimate definition of an intimate gala. With more that 150 in attendance, patrons still felt as though they were in the comfort of a private gathering. The screening offered a unique atmosphere with eight areas to lounge on sofas and chairs while viewing the film amongst friends and colleagues, including an eclectic list of personalities such as Marion Ross, Roslyn Kind, Geri Jewell, Kate Linder and more
As Actor, Producer and Director for “My Mom and the Girl,” Susie Singer Carter remarked, “It was a transcendent evening that paralleled the spirit of our film … love, light, generosity and gratitude. A sense of family permeated the magical setting, the fabulous Hollywood Museum, with everyone decidedly wanting the world to see this little film! What more could I ask for.”
“Show it again!”, exclaimed Marion Ross, and adding, “Valerie’s heart and warmth shine through this touching and loving tribute to a mother’s struggle with Alzheimer’s.”
