From River To Sea (educational)
- Directed by: Susan Fink
- Produced by: Susan Fink and Emerson Machtus
FROM RIVER TO SEA is an emotional, heartfelt story about journeys, decisions and modern life - a story not unlike that of many women. As a small glimpse into the realities of what it means to be a mother in our times, we follow Susan Fink, a filmmaker, whose life after a devastating divorce is at a crossroads. She is 36, without a home of her own, and living with her daughter in her mother's one-bedroom apartment. Her spirit is broken and the relationships with her mother and daughter have been harmed by despair and neglect. While on a trip to Eastern Europe, attempting to film the realities of post-war Jewish life, she confronts her own demons and decides to repair the damage with her mother and daughter. Using their shared Jewish tradition and her heart as a guide, Susan struggles to heal and reconnect the three generations—searching for a way to heal herself, and bring them all back together once again. She transforms the journey into one of discovery and fulfillment—seeking advice and learning about herself along the way.
