Caris' Peace
From the director of Killing Kasztner, a powerful documentary about a brilliant actress who triumphed over the loss of her short-term memory

In Person: Filmmakers GAYLEN ROSS and REBECCA NELSON

Co-Presented by the The Head Injury Association

Reception at 6:30pm
Film at 7:15pm
Followed by Q&A

What is an actress without memory? Caris Corfman was a brilliant graduate of the Yale School of Drama on the brink of stardom, acting opposite Ian Holm in the dramatic film Dreamland or in the original Broadway cast of "Amadeus" with Ian McKellen and Tim Curry, when a brain tumor left her without short-term memory. Robbed of her ability to learn, recall and recite lines, or even to know what play she's in, Caris was swiftly forced to recognize that her career was over.

Caris' Peace is the story of this courageous woman's triumphant and deeply moving return, against all odds, to the New York stage with a one-woman show. Told with remarkable humor and wit, with friends and colleagues; actors Tony Shalhoub, Kate Burton and political comedian Lewis Black, it is an extraordinary journey of courage and never giving up hope.

The film is directed by Gaylen Ross with collaborating director Rebecca Nelson, and produced by Gaylen Ross, Rebecca Nelson, Steve Skrovan, Andrew Ford and Lewis Black.

Caris' Peace was the official selection of such esteemed film festivals as the Hamptons International Film Festival, Williamstown Film Festival, Santa Fe Film Festival, Heartland Film Festival, and Cleveland International Film Festival. It won Best Documentary Feature at the Athens International Film Festival, Ohio, and was an award winner in the Calgary "Picture This" International Disability Film Festival. (USA, 2011, 76 min., color, Blu-ray)
