The Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will offer virtual cinema access starting Friday, Jan. 15, to “Acasa, My Home,” a compelling documentary seen through the eyes of a family trying to adapt to a new lifestyle; and “Some Kind of Heaven,” an acclaimed documentary that offers an inside look into America’s largest retirement community.
“Acasa, My Home” is set in the wilderness of the Bucharest Delta, where nine children and their parents lived in perfect harmony with nature for 20 years until they were chased out and forced to adapt to life in the big city. Radu Ciorniciuc’s heartbreaking debut is a thoughtful study of gentrification.
“Some Kind of Heaven” ventures behind the gates of a palm tree-lined Florida retirement community called The Villages, aka Disneyland for Retirees. It profiles four residents as they strive to find solace and meaning in their golden years.
