SELECTED DOCUMENTARY FILMS
Don't Go Back to Sleep
A poetic portrait of Bob, an elder who attempts to re-engage his art practice while contending with the aftermath of a major stroke. He has been diagnosed with aphasia, a condition that affects his short-term memory, and Bob struggles to stay awake to the present as his mind most concretely draws him to the past.
The film follows multiple timelines in his life as it reflects on impermanence, the African American experience, the restorative power of art, and aging.
