Growing up in a single-parent household since the age of 6, my Bubbi played a huge role in helping my mother raise me. She’s been one of the few constants throughout my life. This bond has helped shaped me into the person I am today, but it’s also made it increasingly difficult to watch and accept the realities associated with her growing older.
"BUBBI" is a very personal and selfish attempt to preserve my idea of my grandmother – to freeze time and frame her infectious zest for life, her wisdom and the love that she’s always shown and passed down to me. From the outside, she may seem like any other grandma – but by the end of the film, I hope she feels like yours too.
