STILL DREAMING is the multi-award winning, uproarious film about the powers of creativity, and how engaging in art-making can deeply enrich our lives at any age.
At The Lillian Booth Actors Home just outside New York City, 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 for them, the themes of perception, reality and dreaming deeply resonate.
This wistful, honest, and frequently hilarious documentary follows the rehearsals as opening night approaches. Tempers flare, health concerns abound, and disaster seems imminent. But as these former entertainers forge ahead, they realize that creativity is a magical force of renewal.
