CALL HER APPPLEBROOG a feature film by Beth B – 2016

CALL HER APPLEBROOG is a poignant and intimate portrait of the renowned artist, Ida Applebroog, who grew up in an Orthodox Jewish household with an immigrant father who only wanted to have sons; instead there were three girls. It is a cathartic story of self-realization and the act of art-making as a lifesaving parachute.

The film reveals Applebroog’s groundbreaking artwork that has been a sustained enquiry into the polemics of human relations, but more intimately, it is about her dramatic struggle to overcome adversity. Her story is one that Beth knows well—Ida is her mother.

EXPOSED a non-fiction feature film by Beth B – 2013

EXPOSED profiles eight female and male artists who use their nakedness to transport us beyond the last sexual and social taboos.

These cutting edge performers -- operating on the far edge of burlesque – combine politics, satire, and physical comedy to question the very concept of "normal." Through them, we get to examine our own inhibitions. The film creates a unique perspective, taking the audience into the clubs and other hidden spaces where these artists perform. EXPOSED WEBSITE
