RIP Vivi Friedman

Director Vivi Friedman has passed away at the young age of 44; the cause was cancer. I knew her name because her first feature film, The Family Tree, was released just a little over four months ago and there was a review in Time Out New York. (Unfortunately, the reviewer gave the film only two out of five stars.) Ms. Friedman also directed a short film in 2003 called Certainly Not a Fairytale, starring former “Freaks and Geeks” pair Linda Cardellini and Jason Segel.

Ms. Friedman’s passing comes two months after fellow female director Sarah Watt’s death from cancer in early November and director Tatyana Lioznova’s death in late September.
