Discover Documentaries: Featuring Cindy Meehl Films – 3 Time Emmy Nominated “Rewind”

September 14 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us virtually for this unique opportunity to meet award-winning director and producer, Cindy Meehl of Redding and gain personal insight into her documentaries. Over the course of several months, we will view three of Cindy’s documentaries on our own time, then meet virtually to discuss them with her and a special guest involved in each of her films. This month watch 3 time Emmy nominated Rewind on your own time, available to view free on Hoopla and on Amazon Prime. Then we’ll gather on Zoom for discussion and Q&A with Cindy and Sasha Joseph Neulinger, director and main subject in the documentary.

In the documentary Rewind, we learn that director Sasha Joseph Neulinger’s father is constantly filming. But his father’s camera, trained on the celebrations and frequent gatherings of a tight-knit family, was also documenting a hidden secret. It was a secret that eight-year-old Sasha could not keep. The truth sparked a media firestorm, a high-stakes court battle, and a generational reckoning. As an adult, Neulinger drew upon a revealing home video archive to piece together a story of the cycles and consequences of abuse, to examine what it means to heal and to effect positive change in the world. Rewind probes the gap between image and reality, showing both how little, and how much, a camera can capture.
