The Rest I Make Up
From Sara Huber
Maria Irene Fornes was one of America's greatest playwrights and most influential teachers, but many know her only as the ex-lover of writer and social critic Susan Sontag. The visionary Cuban-American dramatist wrote over 40 plays and won nine Obie Awards. When she gradually stopped writing due to dementia, an unexpected friendship with filmmaker Michelle Memran reignited her spontaneous creative spirit and triggered a decade-long collaboration that picks up where the pen left off. What began as an accidental collaboration becomes a story of love, creativity, and connection that persists even in the face of forgetting.
