CIFF Aging in Maine Film Tour: The Genius of Marian

Lincoln Theater is pleased to bring the Camden International Film Festival's Aging in Maine Film Tour to Damariscotta with a series of shorts and a documentary feature  that will help spark a public, inter-generational dialogue around the challenges and opportunities of Maine’s aging demographics.

In The Genius of Marian,  filmmaker Banker White documents the efforts of his mother Pam, diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, to write a book paying tribute to her late mother Marian Williams Steel a celebrated artist who also suffered from the common form of dementia. As Pam's memory begins to fade, her efforts to finish the book take on a poignant air of urgency that offers insight into the disease that is slowly ravaging her mind, and the rich family legacy she must now race to preserve.

This film has no rating.

Following the feature will be a brief discussion.

Tickets:  $8 Adult / $ 6 LT Members and Youth 18 & Under. 

(Note: Your ticket also entitles you to stay for the shorts program starting at 3 pm.
