An elderly female narrator revisits her youth, telling the story of her sister Mable, a poor farm girl who reads classic literature to their abusive father, struggling mother, and family of seven sisters and brothers, helping to forge a new existence for them for generations to come. An experimental solo-screendance short, Generation is shaped by a script consisting entirely of two nearly identical voice-over monologues, echoing each other at various points and driving and chasing the film's visual images. Generations of stories are symbolically intertwined in these images, representing memories of the past and visions of the future for these women and their unknown female descendants. Generation is about memory and storytelling and windows in time. The story is inspired by the life of the filmmaker Pamela Woolford's octogenarian mother, Sadie Woolford, who appears briefly in the film. Sadie grew up in rural poverty-stricken areas of North Carolina in the '30s, '40s, and '50s, where she would read classic novels and short stories to her family of ten sisters and brothers. In Generation, literary works of O. Henry--"The Gift of the Magi" and "The Last Leaf"--and the opening storyline of In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust serve to foreshadow...and inspire Mable, her mother, and their family's fate. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Generation: A Pamela Woolford Film 2018 IMDb
