Note from the filmmaker:

Sibling loss is often overlooked. I made this film because I needed to tell my own grief story. I share it here hoping it will inspire others to do the same.

About Peanut Gallery:

When Molly was 26, she returned to her family home in Indiana to speak with her parents for the first time about her sister’s death 15 years earlier. What emerged is a glimpse beneath the surface of a family grieving, a meditation on siblings and love, and a raw reminder of the ties that bind us. At times dark, at times funny, Peanut Gallery starts a conversation about grief and loss that in contemporary society can feel almost impossible and taboo.

About the filmmaker Molly:

Molly is an Emmy-nominated filmmaker. Her feature documentary Peanut Gallery played Slamdance Film Festival and is distributed by Random Media. She produced the HBO documentary GASLAND, which won an Emmy and was nominated for an Oscar.

The process of making Peanut Gallery brought Molly closer to her family. She and her mom have spoken on sibling loss at Columbia University, Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK), National Alliance for Grieving Children (NAGC), American Society of Ped. Hem/Onc (ASPHO), Assoc. of Ped. Onc. Social Workers (APOSW), Bereaved Parents of USA (BPUSA), and Assoc. for Death Education and Counseling (ADEC).
