Description

Filmmaker Deborah Craig will introduce a screening of her award-winning film “A Great Ride,” a 30-minute documentary about Bay Area lesbians confronting the challenge of aging with determination, dynamism, courage and humor. The film follows Sally, a retired women’s studies professor and activist living in a cabin in Northern California; Brenda, an African American political activist in Vallejo; and five residents of a Santa Rosa retirement community: two couples, Nancy and Marjorie and Sue and Patty, as well as Shirley, who is single. In their youth, these women faced the difficulty of coming out. Now they are pioneers as they take on aging, with an independent and irreverent spirit and a heartening delight in living.

Deborah Craig has created more than a half-dozen films about socially relevant topics such as HIV/AIDS among women and the positive influence of community gardens in low-income neighborhoods. She teaches in San Francisco State University’s Health Education department and Mills College in Oakland. Her short film “I’m Gonna Be Here” is part of the compilation “Still Around” which premiered at the Castro Theater in San Francisco in 2010 and has screened in film festivals and public venues around the United States and internationally. In 2012, it won best documentary at the Out in the Desert Film Festival, and in 2011 it was an official selection at the Milwaukee LGBT Film Festival, the Seattle Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, and Mezipatra Czech LGBT Film Festival.
