Description

Gilda’s Club Westchester presents a special screening of acclaimed Tribeca Film Festival opener, Love, Gilda, at Bedford Playhouse

 

Love, Gilda tells the award-winning comedian’s life story with the help of rare home movies, newly found audiotapes and her personal journals read by the comedians she inspired (Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Bill Hader, Melissa McCarthy and more). Interviews with her contemporaries and friends—Chevy Chase, Laraine Newman and Lorne Michael, to name a few, complete this unique and heartfelt tribute to a pioneer and legend in TV and comedy.  Immediately following the movie, Bedford Playhouse founder John Farr will host a Q & A  with and SNL writer Alan Zweibel, one of the executive producers of the film.

Love, Gilda  was produced and directed by first-time feature filmmaker Lisa D’Apolito who said she “fell in love with Gilda Radner while doing pro bono work for Gilda’s Club, the cancer support organization Gene Wilder founded in honor of Gilda….”

Melissa Lang, CEO of Gilda’s Club Westchester said, “Gilda’s Club Westchester is excited to give our neighbors a glimpse into the very heart and soul of Gilda. She lived such an extraordinary life…filled with fame, heartache, love and laughter.  She left us too soon, but her legacy lives on. “Gilda’s Club Westchester provides emotional support and social support for anyone affected by cancer.  All services are free of charge.
