THE GROWING SEASON

Expected to Attend: Director Evan Briggs; producers Stephanie Wang-Breal, Carrie Weprin; editor Erik Dugger; subjects Charlene Boyd, Marie Hoover

WORLD PREMIERE Seattle’s Providence Mount St. Vincent is a nursing home that also houses the Intergenerational Learning Center, a preschool program. Over the course of a school year, elderly Mount residents regularly interact with young children over various activities. As relationships develop between those at the end of their lives and others at the beginning of theirs, both are enriched. Evan Briggs offers an intimate, bittersweet observation of both growing up and growing old.
