Thursday, October 10, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE -- “39½” did not being life as a narrative feature. Herold, who moved to the Mission District in 1992 to attend the graduate film program at San Francisco State University and now splits her time between San Francisco and Syracuse, New York, where she teaches at Syracuse University, previously made short animations and short documentaries. Among her works are “Grrlyshow” (2001), about girl-zines, and the autobiographical “Bachelorette, 34,” about her life as a mid-30s single woman in San Francisco.
