Encore: Be Here Now

Tuesday, April 12, 2016

Be Here Now is a raw and intimate documentary film currently in production which chronicles the cancer journey of actor Andy Whitfield and his wife Vashti and inspires all of us to live life fearlessly. Andy became an international star in 2009 when he was cast in the lead role in the hit television show, “Spartacus: Blood and Sand.” While seemingly on top of the world, Andy was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins lymphoma at the end of the first season and passed away in September 2011. But Be Here Now, is not a film just about cancer. Its message throughout is that life is to be lived without fear and that all people should go after their dreams, no matter what. Andy and Vashti both believe that every individual is capable of making extraordinary things happen. Join us for a conversation with Vashti Whitfield and Lilibet Foster, the film’s director and producer.
