A Postcard From Lily Dale

This fifty-five minute documentary is the story of an artist, Marshall Arisman, whose creative life was highly influenced by his grandmother—a noted and gifted medium who lived in a Spiritualist community called Lily Dale in upstate New York.  As a Spiritualist minister who was herself a talented artist, Louise Arisman presented her young grandson with the possibility that life everlasting was not simply a religious hope, but one she could prove through her work as a medium every day as she communicated with those who had “passed over” bringing messages back to the living. The fascination with that possibility has shaped his work as an artist.
