Everything Is Copy
Jewish screenwriter Nora Ephron
remembered through film prize.
or filmmaker Meera Menon, no
honor could have been more
fitting than winning the inau-
gural award named after famed Jewish
screenwriter and novelist Nora Ephron,
the woman whose work inspired her.
At the recent 2013 Tribeca Film
Festival, Menon was named the first
recipient of the $25,000 Nora Ephron
Prize, given to a writer or director whose
work embodies that of the late Ephron,
who wrote the scripts for a number of hit
films, including When Harry Met Sally,
Heartburn (based on her own life) and
Sleepless In Seattle.
Menon, 28, said that Ephron's work
has inspired her because it epitomizes
"how to take pain and suffering and turn
them into laughter and joy. Receiving this
incredible honor in her name means more
than I could ever articulate:'
June 26 will mark one year since
Ephron's death from complications from
acute myeloid leukemia. Her work will
now live on through the annual prize
given at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Menon received the prize on April 25
for her film Farah Goes Bang, which fol-
lows a woman in her 20s who tries to lose
her virginity while campaigning across
America for presidential candidate John
Kerry in 2004.
"It is a tremendous act of bravery to put
your personal life into your storytelling,"
Menon said. "Nora did it with more class
than anyone has ever done:'
Following in Ephron's footsteps, Menon
used her own experiences, as the daughter
of an immigrant from India, to help shape
her storytelling. Farah Goes Bang was the
to make a film
about the issues
most to her:
sex and youth.
Filmmaker Meera Menon
Ephron, through her scripts, "recounts
a particular female experience that is
sometimes painful or shameful, but she
finds the humor, the heart and the lev-
ity in those subject matters.
"In her iconic film When Harry Met
Sally and in You've Got Mail, Meg Ryan's
characters, and her interpretation of
Nora's words, presented a new modern
woman that we hadn't seen before, one
that was smart, funny and complicated,
and she did all of the things that women
aren't allowed to do onscreen:' she added.
Jane Rosenthal, co-founder of the
Tribeca Film Festival with Robert DeNiro
and Craig Hatkoff, said the festival orga-
nizers were impressed with Menon's
"fresh, witty, and smart take on a coming-
of-age story about girlfriends, passions
"Her film captures the spirit and
themes of Nora's work," Rosenthal said.
"I'm proud to continue Nora's legacy
through this award and encourage women
filmmakers to create the work that
Ephron's son Jacob Bernstein (with
her second husband, journalist Carl
Bernstein) is a reporter for the New York
Times and will direct an HBO movie on
his mother's life called Everything Is Copy,
a phrase she often used to describe the
turn of events in her own life. ❑
