36th Annual VIRGINIA FILM FESTIVAL October 25-29, 2023

Scenes with Ivan

Scenes with Ivan Image FINAL

Preceded by the short film Woody’s Order (16 min.)

Local filmmakers Doug and Judy Bari chronicled their son Ivan’s life on video from his birth in 1985 to the present, a span of 32 years.  It took two years to sift through hundreds of hours of footage they had shot and never looked at.  In the process of reviewing the material, they discovered forgotten moments of what makes a life and how things come full circle.  The story has a life-affirming sweetness and is peppered with irreverent humor. Discussion with filmmakers Doug and Judy Bari, and subject Ivan Bari
