IMA student Megan Rossman’s documentary, Love Letter Rescue Squad, is screening at The American Pavilion Emerging Filmmaker Showcase at the Cannes Film Festival.
About the documentary:
“Our history was disappearing as quickly as we were making it.” With that realization, Deborah Edel and Joan Nestle co-founded the Lesbian Herstory Archives, the world’s largest collection of materials by and about lesbians. More than 40 years later, Deb must consider the future of the collection.
