Still Dreaming

Hank Rogerson & Jilann Spitzmiller

STILL DREAMING (DOCUMENTARY) [SAT. SEPT. 26 @ 10AM] - Still Dreaming documents a unique take on Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” as performed by a group of retired actors, dancers and musicians at the Lillian Booth Actors Home just outside New York City. The former Broadway stars embark on a journey through the magical play at the urging of the Home’s administrators, who see this as an opportunity to boost quality of life for the residents. As the rehearsal process unfolds, the actors find themselves experiencing both the pain and exhilaration of re-immersion in their life’s work amidst the difficulties of old age. At the same time, the troupe’s young Shakespearean co-directors struggle to maintain forward momentum with this acting ensemble of octogenarians. Ultimately the performance of the play turns out to be a vital reminder of the value of engaging in our dreams and creative pursuits no matter the circumstance. --- To purchase passes visit www.WaterfrontFilm.org
