"Sondra Berman: A Life of Transitions"

films by Zenith Hass

“[With Grace, I transitioned] into a life where I shared almost nothing with my partner to a life where I was sharing everything – we cooked together, we worked together…we supported each other…we had all sorts of life experiences that we shared. Nothing was isolated…I miss her a lot – she was the best thing that ever happened to me.”

—Sondra Berman
