The Hope College Knickerbocker Theatre Spring Film Series will welcome Sky Bergman, director of “Lives Well Lived,” on Friday, May 18, for a 7:30 p.m. showing of her film followed by a conversation with the audience.
“Lives Well Lived” is the opening film for the film series and is showing Monday-Saturday, May 14-19. The documentary film celebrates the wit and wisdom of adults 75 to 100 years old who are living their lives to the fullest. Through their intimate memories and inspiring personal histories encompassing more than 3,000 years of experience, 40 people share their secrets and insights for living a meaningful life. “You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll feel, you’ll see life in a new light after watching ‘Lives Well Lived,’” film critic Oscar Flores has said. The film is not rated.
Bergman is a filmmaker and photographer whose work is in many permanent collections through the United States and France. She is currently teaching at Cal Poly State University in California.
The Spring Series will also feature “Getting Grace” on May 29-June 2, “The Last Suit” on June 4-9 and “Hichki” on June 11-16. All films are at 7:30 p.m.
