Film Independent Members and guests are invited to join us for a live Q&A with Pieces of a Woman director Kornél Mundruczó, writer Kata Wéber and actors Vanessa Kirby and Ellen Burstyn.
Martha and Sean are a Boston couple on the verge of parenthood whose lives change irrevocably when a home birth ends in unimaginable tragedy. Thus begins a yearlong odyssey for Martha, who must navigate her grief while working through fractious relationships with Sean and her domineering mother (Ellen Burstyn), along with the publicly vilified midwife (Molly Parker), whom she must face in court. Directed by Kornél Mundruczó (White God, winner of the 2014 Prix Un Certain Regard Award), written by Kata Wéber, and executive produced by Martin Scorsese, Pieces of a Woman is a deeply personal, searing and ultimately transcendent story of a woman learning to live alongside her loss.
