i am a good person / i am a bad person (2011)

;i am a good person / i am a bad person,  production still;Well-intentioned but misguided filmmaker Ruby White, played by writer-director-producer Ingrid Veninger, leaves her husband and son in Toronto and embarks overseas with her eighteen-year-old daughter Sara, as her assistant, to present her feature film, titled Head Shots, at festivals. Deaf to advice, a bundle of insecurities and a loose-wheel interviewee, Ruby over-shares, alienating all around her, Sara included. When a criticism from an audience member at a UK screening causes Ruby to question herself, the mother-daughter relationship melts down and Sara suggests they go their separate ways for the remainder of the trip. Dejected, Ruby travels to the Berlin festival alone. During a break from trying to rustle up an audience for a screening, Ruby heads to her hotel bar where a drunk patron blurts to her “are you a good person or a bad person?” Traumatized to self-reflection, she decides the next day to wear a sandwich board asking that pointed question, eliciting probing conversations. Meanwhile Sara moves on to Paris to visit her cousin and struggles with the reality of being pregnant by a boyfriend back home. She wanders Paris faced with a hard personal choice, while falling in love with the City of Lights. Both mother and daughter – now without each other as a sounding board – must confront their life changes alone, before returning home together.

i am a good person / i am a bad person will have its World premiere at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
