WHEN: Sunday, Nov. 13th @ 4:00pm

In “Isle of Capri,” Filmmaker Dawn Young and her husband, singer/songwriter Jon Pousette-Dart, enhance her mother’s life, and that of her housemates, through music. Thanks to the songs of her mother’s youth, the filmmaker is able to open the door to the far away remembrances of the past once again. Dawn is able to find her mother who is touched by Alzheimer’s disease and intimately share the last years of her life until their final moments together.
Isle of Capri has been featured at the Martha’s Vineyard Film
Festival, the “WilliFest” in Brooklyn, the NY/LA Film Festival, The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival, and The Lifetree Film Festival where it won “The Lifetree Film Award”.
