Cap off Film Days with a party and a toast to this year’s festival. Continue discussions about the films you’ve seen. Enjoy the Adaptations exhibition featuring the work of Christina Hunt Wood. The raffle will be held for the painting Changing Seasons by Susan Jones Kenyon.
Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda follows the creative process of pianist and composer Ryuichi Sakamoto after the typhoon and nuclear meltdown at Fukushima. A prolific composer, Sakamoto’s career has spanned four decades, excelling in disparate genres from techno-pop to film scores.
Peter Rutkoff, professor of American Studies at Kenyon College, has selected another compelling film for us to discuss over brunch. Julie Dash’s short film Illusions may have been made in the 1980s but its message is no less relevant today.
This is our traditional opening night bash and your chance to meet filmmakers, artists, and experts in their various fields as Film Days kicks off for another fast-paced and engaging weekend. This year we are hosting the opening night party in The Smithy Gallery, and the event includes a buffet, one complimentary beverage, and a cash bar.
