Then the father went farther away than the daughters ever went. I won't reveal the ending, but shortly after both of Richard’s healthcare providers at his housing complex left to take jobs elsewhere, he went off his meds and disappeared.

But charming as ever, he smiled at the last person who saw him.
Unlisted won a STIFFY for Most Compelling Documentary. An affecting film, delightful despite the darkness of its subject, it has an unforgettable character at its center. The production’s homemade, slightly tentative quality only strengthens its authenticity. The next screening is 7 pm this Wednesday (June 10) at Central Cinema, 1411 21st Ave. Tickets.
