I Guess I’m Not Going to Get to Vegas is an intimate documentary portrait of love and loss between two elderly Jewish lesbians from New York City who came out before the emergence of a visible gay rights movement. Two years ago, Aileen Hunt, age 83, lost her lover of over 40 years, Florence Sterling, to lung cancer. She began to process her grief through the transformation of Florence’s garden into a living, shifting memorial. The garden has become both symbolic of Florence and a space in which Aileen is able to grieve and continue their relationship. Through the lens of identity, place, and memory, Aileen’s blunt, candid, and often humorous storytelling allows her to fantasize Florence back into her daily life.
