(MacLaine). From that moment on, everything changes. Elsa bursts into Fred’s life like a whirlwind, determined to teach him that the time he has left to live—be it more or less—is precious and that he should enjoy it as he pleases. ELSA & FRED is produced by Oscar Winner Ed Saxon (Silence of the Lambs), Matthias Ehrenberg (Before Night Falls), Ricardo
Kleinbaum, Jose Levy and Nicolas Veinberg.
