Lance Oppenheim Brings His Young Vision In Some Kind of Heaven [Exclusive Interview]

Lance Oppenheim makes his directorial debut with Some Kind of Heaven. Oppenheim’s young view brings out a side of a senior citizen community that is outshined.


The Synopsis 

With Some Kind of Heaven, first-time feature director Lance Oppenheim cracks the manicured facade of The Villages, America’s largest retirement community – a massive, self-contained utopia located in Central Florida. Behind the gates of this palm tree-lined fantasyland, Some Kind of Heaven invests in the dreams and desires of a small group of Villages residents – and one interloper – who are unable to find happiness within the community’s pre-packaged paradise. With strikingly composed cinematography, this candy-colored documentary offers a tender and surreal look at the never-ending quest for finding meaning and love in life’s final act.

The young filmmaker already has several short documentaries under his belt like Long Term Parking, No Jail Time: The Movie, and The Happiest Guy in the World.
