Pittsburgh native Brian Silverman writes, directs, and stars in the heartwarming, fictional tale Two Lives in Pittsburgh. Confronted by his mother’s illness and his child’s exploration of gender, Bernie Evers, a traditional blue-collar guy, finds himself struggling to come to terms with the man he’s always been and the father his child needs him to be. Silverman’s feature directorial debut is a love letter to Pittsburgh and an engaging tribute to imperfect people doing their imperfect best.
