UT Professor to Premiere Documentary Film Featuring Local Senior Citizens
Christopher Boulton, an award-winning independent filmmaker and associate professor of communication at The University of Tampa, will host the Tampa premiere of his feature length documentary Life After Lifeat UT’s Reeves Theater in the Vaughn Center on Friday, Aug. 16, at 7 p.m.
Tickets are free of charge, and can be reserved at http://lifeafterlifefilm.com/screenings.
Life After Life is a poignant, surprising and at times hilarious documentary about aging, ability and artistic expression that shows it is never too late to explore the unknown. The film documents how applied dance majors from UT inspired three charismatic grandmothers from the Ella at ENCORE retirement community in Tampa to create an original modern dance in one week. As the recital approaches, the women struggle to overcome a range of mental and physical limitations. What they create, and their journey along the way, offers an intimate look at what happens to the creative process when every body dances.
Life After Life first screened at the Sarasota Film Festival in April 2019. This public screening is part of USF's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute Friday Lecture Series.
The film runs one hour. It will be followed by a Q&A with the director and main subjects and then a reception with light refreshments.
