Last night I attended the screening of a documentary film called Hats Off! Shot in New York for over ten years, the film is about an aging actress named Mimi Weddell. She is currently ninety-three years old, and has starred in numerous commercials, independent films, commercial films and television shows over the years. The documentary itself is quite fun, and a great look at what it’s like to be an actress in New York City. After the film Mimi and director Jyll Johnstone spoke to the audience. We learned that the film is being shown at Quad Cinema on 13th Street starting this weekend (and probably into next weekend), and it is self-distributed.
