Friday, April 17
7:00pm, $Give What You Can

Filmmaker Paul McComas will give a virtual presentation of The Collection, a short film he made in 1983 and then restored/revised/enhanced in 2019. This movie — along with three other, shorter works that he’ll screen beforehand — is an example of Intergenerational Self-Collaboration (IGSC), a process of revisiting and revising an artwork from one’s own past.  The screening will precede a two-session workshop centered on McComas’s concept of IGSC.
