90 year-old producing films inside retirement community

News

In Greenville, a 90-year old amateur filmmaker is bringing a little bit of Hollywood to his retirement community.

For the past three years, Dr. Jerry Polsinelli has directed, edited and produced 11 short films with the acting group “Rolling Green Village Players” at Rolling Green Village.

They recently finished a comedy that took them five weeks to film in his apartment.

Dr. Polsinelli is a retired obstetrician gynecologist who says the hobby is bringing new life to his community.

“It was like when I delivered a baby in the old days,” he says. “It was a new creation every time I did something, and these videos are new creations.”

The acting group’s latest film is a comedy called “The Naked Man on the Couch.” It will debut to a large crowd of residents, family and friends at Rolling Green Village Thursday December 13th.
