Olympia, The Film
Friday, July 9th at 7 pm
Join us on our Facebook page July 9th at 7 pm CST for a revealing and unfiltered documentary following the life and career of Academy Award winning actress Olympia Dukakis, Ten Chimneys' 2011 Lunt-Fontanne Fellowship Master Teacher .
This documentary's cinema-verité style allows the audience to constantly move alongside Olympia as she navigates between rehearsals, workshops, family life, and finally the journey to her ancestral home in Greece. Exhibiting both candor and vulnerability, we see her deal with age, grief and sexuality while opening up about her past struggles with depression, suicide and drug addiction. Relinquishing and confronting her inner doubts and demons, we reflect upon her life, finding strength in sisterhood and the unity of female solidarity. Through her brutal honesty and sincerity, Olympia compels us to confront our own shortcomings and differences by letting go, and moving forward with defiant conviction.
Mark your calendars to accompany us on Ms. Dukakis' journey on Friday, July 9th at 7 pm CST via Facebook. Watch the trailer on our Facebook Page!
