This award-winning documentary, the work of two local women, will be showing at the Arlington Regent Theater.
The movie grew out of a question that Ashley (the 'Ash' in AshBash") was frequently asked: “Why aren’t you married?” The question stalked her for years.
Amusing, honest, profound, and ultimately inspiring, the documentary follows one woman’s journey of self-exploration from full-on panic over being single to her epiphany that she does not have to get married; that her single life and all the many relationships in it are worth celebrating - in style.
Standing the traditional happy ending on its head, the film salutes the power of possibility, connection, and joy. Come join the party - and experience a phenomenon like no other!
Much of the film was shot in and around the Boston area. “AshBash” features the artwork of Emmy-winning Bonnie Timmons (of “Caroline and the City” fame) and the original music of local jazz legend Rusty Scott.
