SPECIAL SCREENING: A Photographic Memory presented by the Annapolis Film Society

Continuing their screenings of notable films, the Annapolis Film Society and the Annapolis Film Festival bring A Photographic Memory to the Bowen Theater at Maryland Hall on Wednesday, June 12, 2024.

A filmmaker ventures into the archives of her photographer mother to construct a personal story about love, loss and finding someone in the work they leave behind.

Director Rachel Elizabeth Seed gets to know her mother through her oeuvre as a world traveler and professional photographer.

In the hands of a lesser director, ‘A Photographic Memory’ could easily degenerate into navel-gazing. But under the watchful eye of the skilled Seed, culminating in an eerily moving final note, the fast-paced film finds an intuitive balance between the urge to hold on and the desire to grab hold of the past in the hope of reaching the future.
