I AM Shakespeare 
(The Henry Green Story)
A Private Screening and Conversation with award-winning director Stephen Dest and Henry Green

Dest's latest documentary, the second in a trilogy about New Haven, poignantly chronicles the turbulent life of a remarkable young man and his miraculous return from death. 
Stephen Dest and Henry Green will answer questions about their collaboration following the screening.

Statement of Purpose:
Your ticket purchase makes a difference by helping us match federal and state grant awards for our upcoming project …way to go… by artist Sheila de Bretteville. An interactive light installation proposed for the Rt. 34 underpass near Union Station, the artwork is designed to remake a deteriorated urban space. In New Haven’s busiest “gateway,” this light installation will delight tourists, commuters, and neighborhood residents alike. 
Raising monies to match to the federal NEA grant and the state Public Art + Community (PAC) Project grant awarded through the Office of the Arts will ensure the completion of this important public artwork.

Please join us for this special private screening!
