New director and Columbia County resident Mary Stuart Masterson spoke at a panel that focused on women in film this morning at Utopia Studios. Ms. Masterson was candid about her struggle to get film projects made and the difficulty of balancing her many different film and theater "roles," which include director, writer, producer and, of course, actor.
She then was joined by her mom (in the peach sweater) and dad at a sold-out screening of "The Cake Eaters" at the Bearsville Theater. Ms. Masterson shook hands with admirers after the screening of her film, which was shot in Catskill, Cairo and Hudson.
"The Cake Eaters" will be screened again Sunday at 3:15 p.m. at the Rosendale Theatre. Tickets are available for purchase at the Rosendale box office.
