Her Story

Rose Marie Reed is many things – a mother, grandmother, former history teacher and storyteller. In this short film, she tells her story of her family's history with the help of a family heirloom. The Landwehr cookbook is the vessel Rose uses to teach her granddaughter, filmmaker Haley Reed, of the best recipe for homemade bread, about the family's ancestry from Germany and stories of her beloved father. Rose passes down the memories of her family through the generations, shaping the lives and perceptions of her children and grandchildren.
