Love, Patience And Alzheimer’s In ‘The Genius of Marian’
We’d like to introduce you to a special family — the White family of Dedham, Massachusetts. Pamela White is the daughter of renowned New England painter Marian Williams Steele. Steele passed away from Alzheimer’s in 2001. To remember her mother, Pamela began writing a book she called “The Genius of Marian.” Two years into the project, Pamela herself was diagnosed with the disease. Now, her son Banker, a filmmaker, is helping his mother finish telling the story of Marian while telling his own mother’s story in a documentary of the same title.
“The Genius of Marian” will be screening at the Independent Film Festival Boston on Saturday.
