FILM: Una Vida
Director: Richie Adams
Q&A with Dr. Nicolas Bazan to follow screening.
Based on the novel by Dr. Nicolas Bazan, UNA VIDA tells the intimate story of disheartened, grieving neuroscientist Dr. Alvaro Cruz after the death of his mother and the unique relationship he develops with the mesmerizing New Orleans street singer Una Vida as her health declines and her struggle with Alzheimer’s progresses. Bazan strives to find meaning in Una Vida’s fragmented recollections of tantalizing jazz lyrics and spellbinding vocals.
Presented in partnership with the Portland Art Museum’s program artNOW, the NW Film Center, and the Oregon chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.Purchase tickets
