Friedman & Grimberg's most recent work is Miss India Georgia, a one-hour video documentary that follows four contestants during the hectic weeks leading up to Atlanta's annual South Asian beauty pageant. In discussions with their grandparents about arranged marriages, quarrels with their boyfriends, and revealing conversations with Indian and non-Indian friends, these young women disclose the complexity of their feelings about growing up in the US as children of immigrant parents.Broadcast nationally on PBS in May, 1998, Miss India Georgia has been shown at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Wexner Center for the Arts, and the Flaherty Film Seminar, and has been featured at film festivals throughout the US. It has received a number of awards, including an Award of Commendation from the American Anthropological Association and the award for Best Independent Video at the New England Film Festival.
Friedman & Grimberg's short film, Skateboard-wise (done with Hsiu-Chuan Yeh & Nabeel Zuberi) is distributed by Picture Start as part of its Best of Ann Arbor series.
The Ann Arbor News wrote of Skateboard-wise:
"A wonderfully whimsical chronicle of Ann Arbor's on-going skateboard controversy . . . Featuring talking-head testimony from skateboarders, cops, and the general public, the film said what it needed to say in a mere nine minutes -- and left you smiling from ear to ear."
