a portrait gallery

Immy's documentaries range widely in subject, length, and mood. She's done serious, funny, long, short, cable, PBS, quirky and straight. In her films, people reveal themselves, we see what they care about, their passions, how they really think. Immy pays close and sympathetic attention to everyone she films, and spends the time to get to know them. Her portraits are not sentimental, exploitative, cliched, or dumbed down--they're as real and moving as life, featuring the good, the bad, and the ugly. Here, a few selected clips.
