The Sedona International Film Festival presents the Northern Arizona premiere of “Ali & Ava,” showing Aug. 6-11 at the Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatre.
Sparks fly as two people develop a deep connection despite the lingering legacy of past relationships.
Both lonely for different reasons, Ali and Ava meet through their shared affection for Sofia, the 6-year-old child of Ali’s Slovakian tenants, whom Ava teaches.
Ali finds comfort in Ava’s warmth and kindness and Ava finds Ali’s complexity and humor irresistible. Over a lunar month, sparks fly and a deep connection begins to grow. However, the legacy of Ava’s past relationship and Ali’s emotional turmoil at the breakdown of his marriage begins to overshadow their newfound passion.
“Ali & Ava” will be shown at the Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatre Aug. 6-11. Showtimes will be 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 6; 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday, Aug. 7, 8 and 10; and 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 11.
