ihate myself directed by Joanna Arnow

I HATE MYSELF 🙂 directed by Brooklyn, New York filmmaker Joanna Arnow will World Premiere this weekend – Friday July 19, 2013, as part of the Rooftop Films summer screening series in Brooklyn, NY. “Sex, offensive slam poets, and a naked film editor add to the director’s journey for egoless self-identity in this home movie-style portrait of lilting self-loathing.”

In I HATE MYSELF :), the 20-something filmmaker Joanna Arnow, here documents her first relationship through the reactions of those around her: her parents, who are blunt yet loving; her friends, disembodied voices on the phone, adamantly giving advice; the editor of her film, a pushy, nude Freud with a ‘fro; and the film’s co-antagonist, Arnow’s boyfriend, a “performance artist” out to offend, drinking heavily and hovering just above derelict. Through her associates’ viewpoints, she reveals a raw and honest portrait of twenty-something Brooklyn malaise and the pathos that fuels it.
