Jane Gillooly, 2013
USA | Format: DCP | 70 minutes

Filmmakers Jane Gillooly and Gustavo Beck in person for Q&A on April 15!

Constructed from 60 hours of reel-to-reel audiotape from the 1960s discovered in a suitcase purchased on eBay, Suitcase of Love and Shame reveals the intimate details of an affair between a Midwestern woman and her lover, who used recording devices to remember and document their romance. Foregrounding the audio material and restraining the visual, director Jane Gillooly reconstructs the doomed relationship in a way that brings the material exceptionally close to the viewer.
