Meaningful Movies in Gig Harbor Presents the Documentary "The Genius of Marian"

Meaningful Movies in Gig Harbor presents the documentary “The Genius of Marian" on Friday, December 14, 6 pm for snacks; 6:30 pm for the movie. Held at 11051 Peacock Hill, inside Agnus Dei Church.

"Come for the free movie. Stay for the stimulating community discussion."

“The Genius of Marian” follows Pam White in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. Her son, the film maker, works with her as she attempts to write a book that tributes her mother, the artist Marian Steele. As Pam's family comes together to support her, they must also prepare for the new reality that Alzheimer's brings. The Genius of Marian is both an intimate look at a much-feared illness and a loving portrait of the meaning of family.

The event is free to the public; donation is gratefully accepted.

Meaningful Movies in Gig Harbor is dedicated to connecting one person to one person at a time through rebuilding a storytelling tradition and fostering vital community dialogue.

Always the 2nd Friday of every month, 6:30 pm at 10511 Peacock Hill Ave, Gig Harbor. www.meaningfulmovies.org
