IFP’s “My First Time”series welcomes leading filmmakers and media artists to the Made in NY Media Center by IFP for an intimate, extended discussion on how they first achieved success.

Having discovered new and inventive ways to propel their careers, these men and women are known throughout the industry as respected trendsetters, admired for producing cutting-edge and critically-celebrated entertainment. But how did they start? Hear these men and women discuss how they achieved and maintained success in a highly competitive field.

This latest edition welcomes daring and provocative filmmaker Azazel Jacobs (Doll & Em, Mozart in the Jungle, Terri, Momma’s Man, and the upcoming feature The Lovers from A24) to discuss his career, cinematic inspirations, how he measures success, and juggling between both film and television.

Be sure not to miss this exciting and informative discussion with one of the most celebrated independent storytellers working today!


Praise for Azazel Jacobs’ work:

“Azazel Jacobs’ The Lovers is that rare thing: a serious romantic comedy with farcical elements that never puts a foot wrong.” – The Wrap

“Doll & Em is therefore a pleasant surprise…The story is framed by the outsize absurdities of show business, but Doll & Em is a character study in miniature.” – The New York Times

“Azazel Jacobs’ Terri works, not least because, against expectation, it is a beautiful movie to look at, with an enchanted sense of place.” – The New Yorker

“Cluttered with beautiful junk and crammed to the rafters with feeling, Momma’s Man is a touchingly true film, part weepie, part comedy, about the agonies of navigating that slippery slope called adulthood.” – The New York Times

In Mommy Dead and Dearest, provocative documentarian Erin Lee Carr (Thought Crimes: The Case of the Cannibal Cop) again explores a crime in the age of social media. Things are not always as they appear, especially in the case of Dee Dee and Gypsy Rose, and what starts out as a grisly tale of matricide morphs into a rabbit hole of deception. Child abuse, mental illness and forbidden love converge in this mystery of a mother and daughter who were thought to be living a fairy tale life that turned out to be a living nightmare. Dee Dee Blanchard and her ailing, wheelchair-bound daughter, Gypsy Rose, were beloved members of Springfield, Mo., but the tight-knit community was rocked when Dee Dee was found murdered in her home, and Gypsy was missing. Investigators tracked a graphic Facebook status stating, “that Bitch is Dead,” to Wisconsin. What unraveled next was a disturbing sequence of events that nobody saw coming. Featuring exclusive prison access to Gypsy Rose Blanchard, the HBO Documentary Films presentation is a disturbing, first-hand look at this bizarre case and explores one of psychology’s most controversial conditions: Munchausen by proxy syndrome.

Mommy Dead and Dearest was directed and produced by Erin Lee Carr; produced by Andrew Rossi; co-producers, Alison Byrne and Andrew Coffman; editor, Andrew Coffman; director of photography, Bryan Sarkinen; music, Ian Hultquist. For HBO: senior producer, Sara Bernstein; executive producer, Sheila Nevins.
