Natasha Mayers: an Un-Still Life

Vermont PBS Award for Best Documentary Film Natasha Mayers: an Un-Still Life. “This film is a delight. Mayers is a compelling character, lively, intelligent, and interesting. But what makes it award-worthy is its intelligent and playful stylistic approach, its story arc and pacing, and its avoidance of some of the foibles of bio-pics. Overall an excellent, fun, and relevant documentary.” Congratulations to Maine filmmakers Geoffrey Leighton and Anita Clearfield for their creative work on the film. Thank you Natasha for sharing your story!
