January 26: "Caris' Peace" Film Screening

Join moderator Prentiss Benjamin and panelists Robert Landy, PhD, Director of the NYU Steinhardt Program in Drama Therapy, and Gaylen Ross, Film Director, for a one-of-a-kind screening and talk-back of Ross's documentary Caris' Peace.

Fifteen years ago the theater and film actress and Yale drama graduate Caris Corfman's life was hijacked. The removal of a brain tumor left her without the ability to make new short-term memories. Caris' Peace is a riveting documentary about Corfman's resolute effort to reclaim her life in theater—something that no one with short-term memory loss has ever attempted—and to return to the world that she loved.
