Abstract

In 1999, filmmaker Jay Rosenstein began saving his mother's messages left on his answering machine. But he didn't know why. Then after listening back to them, he discovered the reason: a narrative began to appear that chronicled her changes over time, a narrative that eventually became the film ERASED. ERASED made its international debut at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival.

ERASED is a documentary short that takes a moving look at an age old problem: memory loss. The film combines old home movie footage with recent answering machine messages to create a powerful and poetic look at the aging process on the filmmaker's mother. The soundtrack, the traditional Jewish prayer/song "Shalom Aleichem", was performed by internationally renown mandolinist and three-time Grammy award nominee David Grisman.
