AMAZON PRIME―Now Streaming “A Great Ride” through June 24

June 9, 2019June 24, 2019

AMAZON PRIME―In recognition of Pride Month, Amazon will stream the award-winning LGBTQ documentary A GREAT RIDE through June 24th. A GREAT RIDE is a 30-minute documentary about Bay Area lesbians confronting the challenge of aging with determination, dynamism, courage and humor. The film follows Sally, a retired women’s studies professor and activist living in a cabin in Northern California; Brenda, an African American political activist in Vallejo; and five residents of a Santa Rosa retirement community: two couples, Nancy and Marjorie and Sue and Patty, as well as Shirley, who is single. In their youth, these women faced the difficulty of coming out. Now they are pioneers as they take on aging, with an independent and irreverent spirit and a heartening delight in living. Directed by: Deborah Craig with Veronica Duport Deliz Written by: Deborah Craig and Ondine Rarey Edited by: Ondine Rarey Director of Photography: Silvia Turchin Composer: Brad Dujmovic Directors: Deborah Craig & Veronica Deliz 2018 | USA | 33 min|   https://vimeo.com/268670512 A Great Ride is supported by California Humanities through a Community Stories grant.
