THE SEASONS – Four Love Stories

March 15, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Over the course of a year, four sets of intertwined characters are faced
with turning points in their romantic lives. Each chapter takes place in a
different season, with the central characters in each season being
age-appropriate, thus: Summer, young adults, Autumn, middle aged, Winter,
elderly, and Spring, a ten-year-old girl. USA, 2022, 82 minutes.
After the screening Rockland County filmmaker Paul Schwartz will discuss
his film with Peabody Award winning broadcaster and ArtsRock Executive
Director Elliott Forrest.
From March 16 through 26, Rivertown Film will present Paul Schwartz’s A New
York Story (2021) in our virtual theater. When you purchase a ticket to
The Seasons you will receive a discount code for 100% off of the price of
tickets to A New York Story.
Directors Statement: I have always been intrigued by pieces that are told
as a series of stories that link to each other: either thematically, by
sharing characters, or by unfolding linearly over a period of time. In this
film the four stories are linked in all three ways. They are all romantic,
they are told serially as the seasons succeed each other, and in each story
after the first, one character from the previous story reappears.
Paul Schwartz is a writer, director and composer. His work is in the field
of dramatic story-telling in all its forms, and encompasses projects in
film, theatre, opera and dance. Recent film projects include TIME CAN BREAK
YOUR HEART and A NEW YORK STORY. He is the composer of two operas, multiple
ballet scores for New York City Ballet, Milwaukee Ballet, Lucinda Childs
Dance Company and others. He is the creator of two cult series of
recordings: the ARIA series and the STATE OF GRACE series, which have sold
over a million copies world wide. He has sold millions more through his
collaborations with Carlos Santana, Josh Groban, and David Foster.
