Now available on DVD and VOD: STILL DREAMING
Hank Rogerson & Jilann Spitzmiller’s look at a Shakespearean performance by elder performers made its bow at DOC NYC in 2014. Screenings followed at Cleveland, Cinequest, Sedona, and BendFilm, among other events. In addition to its DVD release, the film is now available on VOD via Amazon and VHX.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Located just outside of Manhattan, the Lillian Booth Actors Home provides a most resonant setting for the staging of a classic play in which nothing is what it seems. Seeking ways to engage their residents, administrators bring in young professional Broadway directors to shepherd the charismatic retired performers through A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Contending not only with Shakespeare but with the physical and mental challenges of old age – as well as some outsized personalities – will this over-80s ensemble do the Bard justice?
