The Genius of Marian at the Lyric in Stuart, FL – January 14th, 2014


The Genius of Marian

English/NR/85 min. 

The Genius of Marian follows Pam White in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Her son, the film maker, works with her as she attempts to write a book that tributes her mother, the artist Marian Steele. As Pam’s family comes together to support her, they must also prepare for the new reality that Alzheimer’s brings. The film is a powerful work of art with many visual textures, interweaving observational film making with super 8 family movies, Marian’s paintings and old photographs. The Genius of Marian is both an intimate look at a much feared illness and a loving portrait of the meaning of family.
Q&A session immediately following each screening with:
David Shenk, advisor to the film The Genius of Marian, and Senior Advisor to Cure Alzheimer’s Fund and Phyllis Rappaport, founding board member of Cure Alzheimer’s Fund
