Hot Docs Top Pick: Melissa, Mom & Me.(Documentary)

Israeli filmmaker Yael Shachar returns to her past when she used to strip in Japan with her best friend and soul mate Melissa. She travels to America to reunite with Melissa seven years later, hoping to look for answers. Along the way we see some of the video that Yael, a photographer, had shot while in Japan, capturing a unique moment in time fueled by alcohol, cocaine, bonding, and nakedness – not just the body, but of the soul as well. What follows next is an intensely powerful portrait of a tragic figure yearning for a fresh start. Co-Directed with Limor Pinhasov. Scroll below for two teasers.
