Artist’s Film Night

Our next Artist Film Night is Monday, February 22, 2021! Our second featured film of the year is “Sky Ladder: The Art of Cai Guo-Qiang” about the Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang and his highly-publicized public spectacles that fill the sky with shimmering fireworks or colorful smoke.  This film is stunning– beautiful and poignant. Available to watch on Netflix and on iTunes. We will be hosting the discussion about this film on Monday evening, February 22, 6:00-7:00 pm on ZOOM at the link here. Please check out this article to pique your interest in this excellent film! After you have watched Sky Ladder– please join us for an evening of excellent cinematic conversation.

Artist Film Nights are back beginning Monday, January 25, 2021! Before Covid-19, one of our favorite ongoing, creative events at the Community Center, has been our Artist Film Night. Debra Amerson and Larry Rippee presented an artist-themed film each month and all attendees would enjoy rich conversation post showing. This creative connecting around film has been missed—and Debra and Larry have decided it is time to re-launch Artist Film Night as a virtual event. Here’s how Artist Film Night will work for these zoom-ing times:
  • We will send out an email each month and include information in these updates, in advance of the Artist Film Night discussion so everyone has a chance to see it beforehand. Debra and Larry will make sure the films will be available for streaming from Netflix, Prime, YouTube, Vimeo or the Marin County Library’s Kanopy streaming service.
  • We will send out a Zoom link the week of the Artists Film Night discussion. This week’s link is here.
Our first offering is “Beauty is Embarrassing” about the remarkable, wacky, exuberant artist Wayne White. This film is available on Prime Video, Vimeo and on iTunes. We will be hosting the discussion on Monday, January 25 at 6:30-7:30 pm at this ZOOM link! This will be fun—join us!
