The Rest I Make Up

Best known for her relationship with Susan Sontag, theatre-maker Maria Irene Fornes considered, by some, to be one of the most influential playwrights and teachers of the 20th century.

Pioneering avant-garde playwright and director Maria Irene Fornes may be better known for her relationship with Susan Sontag but she is considered, by some, to be one of the most influential playwrights and teachers of the 20th century.

A chance meeting with documentary filmmaker Michelle Memran leads to a tender and inspiring portrait of Irene's later years as she faces the challenges of memory loss, in much the same way she lived her life; with humour, creativity, style and sass.

Throughout their developing working relationship, Fornes mentors Memran, guiding her through the same creative process she applied to her own work, encouraging vulnerability, transparency and creative free-thinking. An inspiring lesson in the way of the artist.

This screening will be followed by a ScreenTalk with director Michelle Memran
