I Guess I’m Never Going to get to Vegas

I Guess I’m Never Going to get to Vegas is a short portrait of Florence Sterling, who passed away from lung cancer two years ago, told through the stories and memories of her lover of over 40 years, Aileen. This piece explores illness, love, and loss through the relationship between two elderly Jewish lesbians who came out before the emergence of a visible gay rights movement.

This is a piece of a larger documentary piece.
