Abstract:

Originally commissioned by Maryland Public Television to teach middle school children about indoor air quality, Joshua Seftel's Breaking the mold has gained cult status and numerous awards. A fast-paced, entirely fictional coming of age comedy about Kee Malesky, the real-life staff librarian at National Public Radio. At age 16, Kee Malesky is lost and in a deep funk, spending most of her time cataloguing her teen magazine collection while living in the long shadow of her hockey star brother. It will take guidance from Kee's best friend, Shelly Kugelman, an appearance on a poular reality television show, and a severe asthma attack induced by toxic mold, to help Kee realize her lifelong dream of becoming a librarian. Narrated by NPR's Scott Simon, Breaking the mold features Danielle Perry, Zabeth Russell, and Dickie Barrett. The film was broadcast nationally on PBS.
