The Campus + Community Film series is a collaborative program of the Colby College Museum of Art and Maine Film Center at Railroad Square Cinema. Films selected are related to or inspired by current exhibitions and/or works in the Colby Museum collection.
Frances Ha (2013, 1:26) stars Greta Gerwig as a young woman in New York City apprenticing for a modern dance company, throwing herself headlong into her dreams despite dwindling success. This film brings forth a story of frustration and joy, capturing that moment of being young and unsure where to go next. The film was shot in black and white by director Noah Baumbach, stylistically described as French New Wave revivalism by many critics. This film series is inspired by the exhibition, Alex Katz: Theater and Dance, on view now at the Colby College Museum of Art.
This screening is free and open to all.
