Filmmaker Lynne Sachs celebrates turning 50 by creating a social experiment in history, memory, and the shape of things. Her collaborators are a diverse group of New Yorkers around her same age whom she invites to spend a weekend exploring the five decades leading to this moment. Their experiences intermingle while they engage in the act of remembering those things that have impacted their lives and shaped who they are-ranging from the assassinations of Kennedy and King, the moon landing, parental infidelities, and Watergate to a first taste of Tang. Tapestries of sound and image dodge and weave the disentangling of one person’s memory, hopscotching to the next when a six-year-old in a long hallway is presented with a ring inscribed with “I Have a Dream.” The result is a transfixing world of dream, imagination, and social reality, where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
