Marshall Arisman‘s feature film A Postcard From Lily Dale, with co-director Francesco Portinari, will soon open. It centers on painter, illustrator and educator Arisman, whose creative life was highly influenced by his grandmother—a noted and gifted medium and minister who lived in a Spiritualist community called Lily Dale in upstate New York.


The film follows Arisman’s return to his grandmother’s home and community of over 50 years, and the site of the church she founded. It features archival footage and outtakes from a documentary on his work and process (Facing The Audience: The Art of Marshall Arisman, 2003), along with photographs and interviews with current Lily Dale psychics.

Watch for announcements of future showings at the website above.
