Join us for a screening of two of Jem Cohen’s films. Anne Truitt: Working (2009) provides a portrait of the artist Anne Truitt (1921 – 2004) through interviews with the artist and the filmmaker. Cohen says, “I was honored to know Anne Truitt, and doubly so when she allowed me to make a short record of her presence and thoughts. I felt as if she opened her hand and showed, in a profound but down to earth way, the compass by which she navigated.” We will also be showing Museum Hours (2013), which is a mesmerizing tale of two adrift strangers who find refuge in Vienna’s grand Kunsthistorisches Art Museum. A chance meeting sparks a deepening connection that draws them through the halls of the museum and the streets of the city. Run time for Anne Truitt: 13 minutes and Museum Hours: 107 minutes. A brief introduction by the Student Organizers will precede the screenings.
