Sundance Update: ETHEL by MFF Alum Rory Kennedy is a Hit!

It’s rare to make a movie about your Mom that gets in to Sundance, and its even rarer when that movie is wildly entertaining and has universal appeal, but that is exactly what Rory Kennedy has done.  With her new documentary, ETHEL, Rory chronicles the life of her mother, Ethel Kennedy, with intimate conversations and never-before-seen images of the Kennedy family.

An MFF alum, Rory is a talented filmmaker but on every level this challenge must have seemed crazy.   The audience here went nuts.

Here’s a picture Jed caught of Rory talking to one of the many people who lined up to talk with her after the screening.

Stay tuned for more of Jed’s updates from Sundance 2012!
