Join us for a free screening of a collection of Bill Morrison’s short films that use decaying footage. These films (which include The Film of Her and Light is Calling) bring a new perspective to Morrison’s career, spanning both film and gallery contexts.
The screening will be followed by a brief conversation with Morrison and Associate Professor of Cinema Studies Steve Wurtzler.
An exhibition of Morrison’s multimedia work, Bill Morrison: Cycles & Loops, is on view August 18–December 31, 2023 at the Colby College Museum of Art’s Joan Dignam Schmaltz Gallery of Art at the Paul J Schupf Art Center in downtown Waterville.
This event is free and open to the public; however, ticket reservation is required. Reserve your spot through the Maine Film Center’s website.
Frame by Frame is a collaborative program of the Colby College Museum of Art and the Maine Film Center. Film screenings are paired with speakers or programs that connect what we see on the big screen to what happens in the museum.
