About The Project
A Woman Like Me is a narrative-documentary hybrid that interweaves the real story of director Alex Sichel, diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in 2011, with the fictional story of Anna Seashell (Lili Taylor), who struggles to find the glass half full when faced with the same diagnosis. The film follows Alex as she uses her craft to explore what is foremost on her mind while confronting a terminal disease: parenting, marriage, faith, life, and death. When we are stuck between a rock and hard place, can our imagination get us out?
A WOMAN LIKE ME premiered at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival, and received its Special Jury Recognition for Directing, Documentary Feature.
