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.
