Film Series Preview Party
January 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Help the SAA kick off the start of their 29th Annual Molly Schlich Independent + International Film Series on January 9th!
This event is held at the SAA’s main campus, where you can buy or pick up your series pass, enjoy drinks & popcorn, and view the series trailers.
The highlight of the evening will be a screening of a short documentary “Meet Uncle Paul”, which was filmed in Chatham and Springfield. Film makers Jessica Bursi and Josh Hester will be present for a Q&A, as well!
Film Description: Meet Paul. 62-years-young – he’s a lover of The Beatles, The Monkees, and The Terminator and he just so happens to be living with Down syndrome. Tracing the trajectory of his 62 years on Earth, Meet Uncle Paul tells the moving history of Paul’s life (born into a family as loving as it large) while in the current day he contends with the early stages of dementia. A powerful reminder of the power of decency and compassion, Meet Uncle Paul pays tribute to an unforgettably indomitable spirit.
