Description

2018 Academy Award winner. Most people wouldn’t find serenity while being stuck in traffic, but Mindy Alper isn’t like most people. Acclaimed documentarian Frank Steifel (TJFF David A. Stein Memorial Award Winner for Ingelore) crafts a compelling portrait of a brilliant artist who is able to channel her extreme depression and anxiety into raw, emotional drawings and sculptures. Heaven is a Traffic Jam on the 405 traces how she has emerged from a life of isolation to one that includes love, trust and laughter.
