“Bernstein’s documentary is an inspiring heartstring-tugger” – Variety
Everything Is Copy is the ultimate tribute to the beloved writer and filmmaker Nora Ephron, who died in 2012, directed by her son, Jacob Bernstein. Though much of Ephron’s work (When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle) was alarmingly personal and revealing – her columns, for example, or the novel Heartburn (the film adaptation of which is also to be screened at the festival) – this exceptional documentary sheds new light on her life and work. A real treat to the many Ephron fans out there, and to those who are lucky enough to be exposed to her charms for the first time.

The story of a building in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, from its origins as a synagogue in the 19th century to its current use as retail space. An intriguing meditation on Jewish identity, childhood memories and gentrification.
