September 21 – 27
LOVE, GILDA opens a unique window into the honest and whimsical world of beloved performer Gilda Radner, whose greatest role was sharing her story. Working with the Radner estate, director Lisa D’Apolito unearthed a collection of diaries and personal audio and videotapes documenting her childhood, her comedy career, her relationships and ultimately, her struggles with cancer. These never-before-seen-or-heard footage and journal entries form the narrative spine of the documentary, allowing Gilda to tell her own story – through laughter and sometimes tears.

“Love, Gilda is a touching reminder of an iridescent star who shined brightly but for far too short a time. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll leave the theater wanting to dive down the YouTube rabbit hole of Gilda Radner.” – Brandon Katz, New York Observer
“Love, Gilda is a celebration of Radner’s life and career that will be beloved by her fans, and make fans out of those who will be introduced to her work through this documentary.” – Erika W. Smith, Bust Magazine
“Forty years later, her comedy looks more sublime than ever. As you watch Love, Gilda, though, it becomes clear that what made Gilda Radner special – and uproarious – was her spirit: open, smiling, generous, euphoric.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety
