'HEAVEN IS A TRAFFIC JAM ON THE 405 / STITCHERS' Presented by LA Jewish Film Festival
HEAVEN IS A TRAFFIC JAM ON THE 405
Documentary /USA/2017/40 minutes
Directed by Frank Stiefel

2018 ACADEMY AWARD WINNER FOR BEST DOCUMENTARY SHORT!

An extraordinary documentary portrait of LA artist Mindy Alper, whose astonishing body of work reveals a lifetime of struggle with debilitating mental illness and family dysfunction. Her only consistent means of communicating has been to channel her self-awareness into remarkable drawings and sculpture. Through an examination of her work, interviews, and the building of an eight foot papier-mache bust we learn how she has emerged from a life of darkness to a life that includes love, trust and laughter. From director Frank Stiefel (Ingelore, 2009).

Q&A with the director Frank Stiefel & Mindy Alper

Frank Stiefel director, producer and writer,came to filmmaking late in life, spending most of his career in the commercial production. In 2009, Stiefel made his first documentary, "Ingelore", about his mother, a deaf Holocaust survivor, which premiered at LAJFF and aired on HBO.

Mindy Alper is a Los Angeles based artist whose work is represented by the Rosamund Belsen Gallery, one of the most prestigious galleries in Los Angeles.
