Documentary by local filmmakers: 'AshBash: A Love Story'

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.

Meet the director (Heidi Sullivan) and subject (Ashley Norwood); Q&A to follow the screening.

    Good to be reminded that choosing to be single is still a valid choice.

    Hey Everyone! When you get to the theatre look for Ashley (the Ash in "AshBash") who will be greeting people outside. Let her know you are with the Culture Vulture group and she will point you in the right direction. We hope to have a Culture Vulture member in the lobby to direct people and then member inside the theatre to show people the general vicinity that Culture Vulture folks are sitting in.
    Looking forward to seeing you all on Thursday night!

    The film sounds interesting, and I would be interested in hearing others' thoughts. I noticed this film is open to the public at large -- how will the "Meet up" folks meet up?
