MILLIE & JERRY is an experimental film where a stroke victim recalls an earlier moment in time when he was a singer. The film is shot in Panavision on Kodak film to create the nostalgic look of a previous time when Jerry was “alive with song.” Millie and Jerry are real people. Jerry really has suffered a stroke. This “silent” film commemorates his struggle to communicate without words…just as Jerry was forced to due do in his real life.
