The visionary Cuban-American dramatist and educator Maria Irene Fornes, often called America's Great Unknown Playwright, spent her career constructing astonishing worlds onstage and teaching countless students how to connect with their imaginations. When she gradually stops writing due to dementia, an unexpected friendship with filmmaker Michelle Memran reignites her spontaneous creative spirit and triggers a decade-long collaboration that picks up where the pen left off. The Rest I Make Up is a loving portrait of a creative woman who remains vibrant, funny, and alive in the face of disappearing memories.
