Senior Activity Center to host intergenerational screening of ‘Cycle of Memory’ on 4/13

The Rochester Senior Activity Center, in collaboration with the Rochester Public Library, invites the public to attend a special screening of Cycle of Memory, an award-winning documentary meant for people of all ages.

Cycle of Memory follows filmmaker Alex Leff and his younger sibling Koby as they try to uncover the past and capture the present, in order to be remembered in the future. Guided by old photographs of the 1945 trip, they search for places aged by time. But while searching for Grandpa Mel’s past, the two are confronted with their own fraught history. If they’re going to complete the turbulent journey, they’ll have to face their own emotional potholes and tumultuous relationships. With the help of a grandmother learning to live alone for the first time, Mel’s lifelong friend and co-adventurer on the bike trip, and a family collection spanning 1950s film reels to 1990s video tapes, Cycle of Memory explores the importance of intergenerational connection, healing painful pasts, and leaving a meaningful time capsule for the future.

The screening will be held on Saturday, April 13 at 2:00 pm in the Rochester Senior Activity Center, 150 Wakefield Street. The film is 72 minutes long and will be followed by a virtual Q&A with the filmmaker.
