New Perspectives Film Series: Caris’ Peace
Saturday, Nov. 10, 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.
Caris Corfman was a prized graduate of the Yale School of Drama and a well-respected, professional actress on the brink of stardom when she was found to have a brain tumor. The subsequent surgery to remove the tumor left her without the ability to retain new memories. CARIS’ PEACE is the story of Corfman’s struggle with depression and the tribulations of living a normal life. Gaylen Ross with Rebecca Nelson have created this powerful documentary which provides an intimate look into the fearless pursuit of Corfman’s life’s work—the creation of her own one-woman show dealing with the repercussions of her surgery. Suggested donation of $5. Refreshments served. The New Perspectives Documentary series is programmed and moderated by filmmaker, Megan Smith-Harris. A Q&A will follow the film with director/producer Gaylen Ross. Registration highly recommended.
