Jennifer

In his award winning short documentary, Jennifer, filmmaker Stewart Copeland explores his relationship with his mother through a recorded conversation between eighth-grade students and astronauts aboard the international space station. Utilizing home movies, found footage, ambient music and voice over, combined with Copeland's own imagery, the film explores the distant spaces between memory and history; hope and fear; longing and loss, creating something both personal and universal.

Jennifer was broadcast nationally on PBS as part of POV's Emmy Award winning 2009 season.
