Lifecasters 1x56

Lifecasters unites fiction and documentary filmmakers to tell stories of three people who use their strength, creativity, and determination to reach their goals—a bit later in life. Each of this innovative documentary’s three segments is directed by a pair of award-winning filmmakers from different professional backgrounds, giving the teams a platform to tell an inspiring story in their own voices. Filmmakers Adam McKay and Shira Piven follow former MC5 guitarist and punk pioneer Wayne Kramer, who finds hope and comfort through music; Oscar-nominees Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert observe African-American dancer Sheri “Sparkle” Williams, one of the oldest female professional dancers still practicing in the U.S.; and Emmy-nominees Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly share the story of Albert Hurwit, a retired doctor who couldn’t read or write music, yet composed an award-winning symphony.
