This Sundance Film Festival selection tells the story of love, loss and family of a group of friends growing up in the innocence of the 1950s, confronting the upheaval of the 1960s and follows their lives as they make sense of their formative years. CCM co-founder Dr. Bernard M. Bandman is one of the boys in the film. He and his wife co-founder Celia Engel Bandman share the story about the illness of their first child a loss that informed their lives and was the genesis of their work with the Center for Communication in Medicine.
The San Francisco Examiner describes the film as intimate, thoughtful and well-crafted ... two sorts of viewers should attend: those who experienced the uneasy 60s and those who did not.
The evening will include the films screening, discussion and reception. Tickets for the event are $25.00 and available through Oldcastle Theatre. Limited seating.
