What is a life well lived? 40 people with 3,000 years of collective life experience answer that question in a new documentary film produced by San Luis Obispo resident Sky Bergman. 

The 2017 San Luis Obispo Film Festival starts Tuesday and runs through Sunday. Actor Josh Brolin, who grew up on a ranch in Templeton, will receive the festival’s top award on Saturday.

Film Festival Director Wendy Eidson said the festival tends to stay away from specific themes, but many of the films this year feature music or politics.

Hearing is Believing is a documentary about Rachel Flowers--a rising musician who has been called a 'piano prodigy'. Flowers lost her eyesight shortly after she was born due to retinopathy of prematurity. She stated playing piano at the age of 2-and-a-half, and at age 4 was accepted to the Southern California Conservatory of Music. Hearing is Believing will be featured at the San Luis Obispo Film Festival on March 19th at 2:30 at the Historic Fremont Theater in San Luis Obispo. A concert from Flowers will follow.
