Sink or Swim

Su Friedrich's 1990 film is composed of 26 separate stories; its title was inspired by a childhood incident in which her father tossed her into the deep end of a swimming pool. “Indeed,” wrote Fred Camper, “much of the richness of this autobiographical film, whose honest engagement with essential human dilemmas proves immensely moving, stems from its refusal to make simple choices or settle into unambiguous positions.”
