A WOMAN LIKE ME – A FILM BY ALEX SICHEL and ELIZABETH GIAMATTI will be having its world premiere is in Documentary Competition at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival.
A WOMAN LIKE ME is a hybrid documentary that interweaves the real story of director Alex Sichel, diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in 2011, with the fictional story of Anna Seashell (Lili Taylor), who tries to find the glass half full when faced with the same diagnosis. The documentary follows Alex as she uses her craft as a filmmaker to explore what is foremost on her mind while confronting a terminal disease: parenting, marriage, faith, life, and death.
When we are stuck between a rock and hard place, can our imagination get us out?
