 “The Rest I Make Up” (2018) is a feature-length documentary following playwright María Irene Fornés, weaving together footage of the present with archival from the past to recall her career. Maria Irene Fornes is "America's Great Unknown Playwright." When she stops writing due to dementia, a friendship with a young writer reignites her visionary creative spirit, triggering a film collaboration that picks up where the pen left off.

Following the film screening will be a discussion with film Director, Michelle Memran.
