NYC PREMIERE From belly dancing to synchronized swimming and golf: everything that a pensioner’s heart desires is offered at The Villages, the world’s largest retirement community. Valerie Blankenbyl’s enthralling and amusing portrait of the fastest growing “town” in the US—soon to be four times the size of Manhattan—explores its complexities and contradictions while shedding light upon the strange and worrying practices behind the surface of the gleaming American Dream sold in the brochures.  – Ruth Somalo

The November 17th screening will be followed by a Q&A with Director Valerie Blankenbyl and Producer Mandy Ward.
