Connections: The OLLI Documentary Film Series
Connections: The Documentary Film Series
As the OLLI at Ringling College documentary film series CONNECTIONS embarks on its fifth year, we’re planning something different for the six films that will be shown for the 2021-2022 academic year (fall, winter, and spring terms). Each film will feature the theme of “Identity” how it informs our sense of self and shapes how we present ourselves to the world.
Films will be screened live at the Ringling College Museum Campus. Following the film, participants can engage in a discussion with the moderator and with one another about the film’s content and impact, as well as raise questions for further exploration.
CONNECTIONS: The Documentary Film Series for the Fall semester!
Tell Me Who I Am (2019) • 1 hour 26 minutes
Monday, Nov. 1 • 2:30-4:30 pm
Ringling College Museum Campus (Masks Required)
Moderator: Julie Cotton
This engrossing film pulls us into the lives of twin brothers Alex and Marcus, one of whom relies upon the other to recreate his lost childhood memories after a motorcycle accident. We slowly see that Alex is learning only what Marcus chooses to tell him, and that much is left out. We accompany Alex on his journey to learn who he is and why his brother is shielding him from the truth.
