Scholar and Painter


Written and directed by Rachel Pospisil
April 1-3

"i was in love
right there and then
*chuckle*"

A true story, Scholar and Painter shares the love story between two WWII refugees. Through interviews with her husband, Frank, we hear about the gripping life of Lillian; how she escaped the Nazi's, how she had a thriving career, how raised a beautiful family, and how her decline into Alzheimer's disease has tested everyone, especially her beloved husband who has never left her side. Inspiring, heart-wrenching, and full of surprises, Scholar and Painter revisits the old adage - is it better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all?
