CELEBRATION OF THE ARTS WEEK FOR OUR COMMUNITY
Premeire Woman's Story
THE FILM Woman's Story is a mature film that explores the contradictions and fragility of a relationship undermined by
society's redefinition of who we are as human beings. Erin Gray turns in a commanding, award-worthy performance with a portrayal that is disarming in its reality. Kent McCord portrays a man in profound conflict, reflecting the best and worst in all of us. Gary Conway's performance as artist/attorney, David Merritt, will invoke people to question their own unchallenged truths. Marshall Borden brings depth, style and humanity to his role of the inspired playwright. A hauntingly beautiful soundtrack and a gallery of mood-evoking landscapes speak to the film's artistic inventiveness.
Starring Erin Gray, Kent McCord, Gary Conway, Marshall Borden, Ann Marie Hall, Megan McCord, Cheryl Cole, D'Army Bailey & Red West
CELEBRATION OF THE ARTS Photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, architecture, music, musical performance, playwriting, theater, dance, food & wine -- all are incorporated in Womanâ€™s Story plot structure and in the thoughts and motivations of its characters. Film, at its best, is the supreme marriage of the art forms. This Celebration of the Arts event expands that theme in bringing attention to the great diversity of creativity in our community and the importance of supporting and enhancing education and the arts â€“ vital to the quality of life, vital to our legacy.
CREATIVELY INNOVATIVE Woman's Story thematically addresses woman's empowerment and fulfillment and the most important problem of our epoch-- the disintegration of the family structure and the inexorable rise of the single parent (2/3 of all children will be raised by a single parent at some point in their lives). These are issues meaningful not only to women but to all of us. While addressing these challenging themes the film encompasses all the art forms, both in story and in its internal Woman's Story is already being heralded as:"an extraordinary filmâ€¦ A stunning filmmaking achievementâ€¦ with such artistry that it becomes a genuine work of art. The look of the film is much like a great painting."
