(Amanda Kramer, US, 2022, 80 min, in English)
Give Me Pity!, written and directed by Amanda Kramer, is a manic take on the retro TV variety show, starring the immensely talented Sophie von Haselberg in her leading lady debut as the star of a one-woman show who unravels as her performance goes on.
For von Haselberg, this is an exciting opportunity to showcase her talents acting, singing, and dancing: If I cooked up my dream project out of thin air, it would look exactly like Give Me Pity! Amandas extraordinary trust gave me license to take Sissy as far in any direction as I wanted. With that kind of freedom, I know I could relive this experience a hundred times and still find a thousand more facets of this wild, wonderful, tragic woman to explore.

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1.
