Just a few days after Founder’s Day, CenterStage at Reston Community Center will have a free screening of a Reston filmmaker’s documentary on Bob Simon’s vision.
Director Rebekah Wingert’s 2015 documentary “Another Way of Living: The Story of Reston, VA” chronicles Simon’s journey to creating his version of a suburban utopia.
Wingert grew up in Reston and returned to live there in the early 2000s.
The screening is set to start at 7:30 p.m. next Wednesday (April 10).
“Another Way of Living” departs from Wingert’s other documentaries, which have focused on Palestinians.
Wingert’s latest production, “Naila and the Uprising,” tells the story of women fighting for freedom in Palestine. The documentary is part of the “Women, War and Peace II” series and is currently streaming on PBS.
