The 2017 Courtyard Cinema at Ward Village season continues with the March 9, FREE outdoor screening of the uplifting and life-affirming WINTER AT WESTBETH, a documentary that takes place in NYC’s West Village, where the elderly residents of a unique artist community continue to question, challenge and create as though there is no tomorrow.

Sarah Ward of Screen International hails the film as “A Delight… follows jubilantly in the footsteps of BILL CUNNINGHAM NEW YORK and IRIS.”

Synopsis: Filmed across one extraordinary year in New York City’s Westbeth Artists Housing, video artist Edith Stephen (95) hopes to complete an experimental film for her birthday; revered contemporary dancer Dudley Williams (75) rehearses for an electrifying return to the stage; and published poet Ilsa Gilbert (82) faces her impending mortality with revealingly candind poetry. An inspirational story about community, ageing and the need to keep creating.
