Still Dreaming

Location: Washington 5, Marriott Wardman Park Hotel

At The Lillian Booth Actors Home just outside NYC, a group of long-retired Broadway entertainers dive into a production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and find that nothing is what it seems to be. With a play that is usually about young love and sex farce, this ensemble finds that the themes of perception, reality and dreaming deeply resonate at this stage of life. As they deal with the shifting challenges of older age, they realize that creativity is a magical force of renewal. Starring Broadway luminaries from another era, STILL DREAMING thrills with its relevance for those of any age. Running time: 90 minutes.

The filmmaker and producer, Jilann Spitzmiller, will be attending the screening to introduce the film and field your questions and comments.

When I'm 65

Location: Washington 1, Marriott Wardman Park Hotel

When I’m 65 is a national public television documentary and engagement program which takes a multi-generational approach in exploring how financial and lifestyle choices today will affect quality of life in retirement. The film includes interviews from experts including Ken Dychtwald, Kerry Hannon and Knight Kiplinger. Through the engagement program, grassroots organizations, employers and professionals can educate communities about living and working longer, retirement planning, and investor protection. Running time: 60 minutes.

The film producer and experts have been invited to the screening to introduce the film and field your questions and comments.

You See Me

Location: Washington 6, Marriott Wardman Park Hotel

Filmmaker Linda Brown’s father embodied 1960s masculinity. But when a devastating stroke leaves him vulnerable and dependent, Linda decides to confront the silence surrounding his troubled and violent past. Drawing on home movies, family photos and interviews, she reveals secrets, uncovers lies, and discovers a redeeming treasure in a lost family video. The result is an engrossing journey about the danger of carrying unresolved grief to our graves. You See Me is a brave, inspiring and empowering film that documents the essence of the human condition and seeks to face the past with courage in order to change the future. Running time: 72 minutes.

The filmmaker will be attending the screening to introduce the film and field your questions and comments.
