STORY DESCRIPTION:

"Archaeology of a Woman" rides the edge between reality and delusion when Margaret (Oscar nominated/Golden Globe winner Sally Kirkland), a feisty, guilt-ridden former newspaper columnist, fights to protect her freedom in spite of the dementia she cannot control. Her daughter, Kate (Tony-Award winner Victoria Clark) returns home to care for Margaret’s worsening dementia and discovers her mother's connection to a thirty year-old crime. As Kate runs between her own aspiring career as a chef and the demands of her mother, the small surveillance camera she installed to help monitor mom at home reveals a far more private life of fear, lust and longing. The film investigates the visceral experiences of age-related dementia through its disconcerting narrative structure and the unsettled lives of two very different generations of women.
