REEL LIFE/REAL LIFE: Movie and Related Village Member Interview
"Three Faces of Eve"
REEL LIFE/REAL LIFE
Thursday, June 29, 7:00 pm
Pasadena Village Office
“Based on a true story.” It seems this catch-phrase leads off the opening credits of most of the films we see today. But it begs the question: How much of the story is truth, how much is fiction? We will once again explore these intriguing questions on June 29. This time our frame of reference will be a 1957 Academy Award-winning film, AND the very personal story of one of our Pasadena Village members who is living through her own, real-life version of what we will see presented on the screen.
THE REEL STORY
Our movie is the classic, “The Three Faces of Eve.” Joanne Woodward won an Oscar for her riveting portrayal of a woman with multiple personalities. The real Eve – upon whose story the movie is based – actually had twenty-two distinctly different personas over her lifetime, but the film’s 90-minute running time could only accommodate three.
THE REAL STORY
It is called dissociative identity disorder, and it affects 1% to 2% of the population, including at least one of our Pasadena Village members. Bonnie Armstrong refers to herself as an A.N. P. or apparently normal person. Those who are acquainted with Bonnie know her as a bright, warm, supportive friend. At the same time, she is living through her own version of what is portrayed in the film. You will be fascinated and inspired by the remarkable story she has to tell.
PLEASE NOTE: A reservation is a MUST for this event.
Capacity is 20 ONLY.
