On Wednesday, September 18, 2013, there will be a special, “Sneak Preview” screening of Living in the Overlap at 7:30 p.m. in Brendle Recital Hall on the Wake Forest University campus.
This half-hour documentary is co-directed by my colleague Cindy Hill and I and is produced by us along with Ellen Hendrix.
Living in the Overlap is the improbably true story of two girls growing up in Brooklyn in the 1940s, falling in love in the Midwest, and making a life together in North Carolina. Lennie Gerber, retired attorney, and Pearl Berlin, retired professor, still have an indelible spark after 47-years.
Recently, David Ford interviewed composer Evan Richey and me about the film, and you can listen to that interview here.
Lennie and Pearl will have a Q & A session following the screening. This event is free and open to the public with seating available on a first come/first served basis.
