“Illusions commend themselves to us because
they save us pain and allow us to enjoy pleasure instead.”

Sigmund Freud

 

   
She is beautiful, poor and infatuated with movie star glamour -- a Jewish immigrant from Eastern Europe arriving in West Virginia on the eve of the Great Depression. Employing a mix of home movies and Hollywood’s Golden Era clips, HER WORLD portrays a woman caught between an Old World and a new country, between reality, glamor and seduction.
