The Rest I Make Up
First screened in September 2018
Director: Michelle Memran. Documentary about the legendary Cuban American, off-Broadway playwright Maria Irene Fornés, as her writing career winds down and her memory starts to go.

Twitter Capsule: Moving at moments but too often Agnès Varda-fies Fornés, recasting a great, brave artist into a winsome sprite.

VOR:   We need more films about aging, memory loss, and great artists under-recognized by wider publics. This could be stronger but I'm glad it exists.
