Still Dreaming follows a group of elderly entertainers living at the Lillian Booth Actors Home in New Jersey and a pair of young directors hired to stage an in-house performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream. As the once-celebrated performers struggle with Alzheimer's, dementia and physical disabilities, the play's themes of perception, reality and memory take on new relevance and poignancy. The film’s co-directors, Jilann Spitzmiller and Hank Rogerson, will be present for a discussion following the screening.
