The Saturday, June 11th, 6:00 PM screening will be followed by a Q&A with Beth B., Ida Applebroog and Jim Coleman.

Beth B’s seamlessly realized film is an intimate and complex portrait of her mother, acclaimed New York–based artist Ida Applebroog. Raised in an Orthodox Jewish household in the Bronx, Applebroog, now in her 80s, shares the provocative, sexual, and deeply personal body of work that has been expressed over decades in her drawings, paintings, and private journals. With mischievous reverence, Beth B gradually peels back the layers of her subject's extraordinary life and work. Call Her Applebroog offers a universal and touching story of filial bonds as well as a deeply rewarding portrait of two artists at the height of their craft.
