Ottawa Premiere the Week of July 26th!
Based on a stage play of the same name by Amy Nostbakken and Norah Sadava, the story follows Cassandra as she tries to organize the affairs for her mother’s funeral. From Cannes, Emmy, and São Paulo International Film Fest award winning filmmaker Patricia Rozema.
“the kind of movie-going experience I love…small personal films can barely get made anymore, Mouthpiece vibrates with the urgency behind its shared expression. Nostbakken and Sadava had something to say, and found a unique way to say it. The existence of a film like Mouthpiece is a small triumph for art.” (RogerEbert.com)
“Enacting the two sides of Cassandra’s conflicting inner dialogue, playwright-performers Nostbakken and Sadava create a compelling portrayal of the tension between regression and progress that is often found within women.” (TIFF)
