The Rest I Make Up

The Rest I Make Up

María Irene Fornés is one of America’s greatest playwrights and most influential teachers, but many only know her as the ex-lover of Susan Sontag. The visionary Cuban-American dramatist and educator spent her career constructing astonishing worlds onstage and teaching countless students how to connect with their imaginations. When she gradually stops writing due to dementia, an unexpected friendship with filmmaker Michelle Memran reignites her spontaneous creative spirit and triggers a decade-long collaboration that picks up where the pen left off.
