Venture is excited to host this special screening of “I’m Afraid It’s Arline,” followed by a Q&A with it’s creators and stars. Writen by longtime Venture staff Miles Wren (based on his stage play), this movie is truly a Venture family creation – Venture staff are the stars, crew, producers
The film explores the relationship between a young musician, DeAngelo (played by former Venture lifeguard Hervé Alexandre) and Arlene, an octogenarian resident of a group home for people with developmental disabilities. As they grow closer, DeAngelo learns Arlene’s heartbreaking story of her early life in an institution for the “feeble-minded” and how living in a place with limited stimulation, educational opportunities and social isolation changed a young girl with minor physical disabilities into an adult with institutional developmental disabilities.
Along with writer Wren, other Venture staff involved with the production are Executive Producer Marie Pinset and Producers Guy Bien-Aime and Andre Clarke. Marie’s son, Chris Pinset is the director. Much of the production was filmed on location at Murphy House.
