Our guest, Rachel Elizabeth Seed, is a DIRECTOR/PRODUCER originally from London, and is a Los Angeles and Brooklyn-based nonfiction storyteller working in film, photography and writing. Join us as Rachel talks about her feature documentary Photographic Memory. She says this about the film ... "After a decade+ of shooting, editing, and producing, my debut feature documentary A PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY, was launched this month at the True/False Film Festival in Columbia, Missouri to standing ovations and with RogerEbert.com calling it one of the best docs they’ve seen this year!

A PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY is an intimate, genre-bending portrait of my attempt to piece together a portrait of my mother, Sheila Turner Seed, an avant-garde journalist I never knew. Uncovering the vast archive she produced, including lost interviews with photographers Henri Cartier-Bresson, Gordon Parks, Cecil Beaton, Lisette Model, and others, the film explores memory, legacy, and stories left untold.

It feels amazing to finally share this passion project with the world and to see people connecting with it in meaningful ways. One of my favorite parts of the weekend was witnessing audience members see new possibilities for connecting with departed loved ones, as I do myself in the film."
