Remnants of Memory + The Silent Pilgrim

In this program


Remnants Of Memory

Directed by Michael Arlen Davis

Fine Art Photographer Charles Johnstone explores the vivid canals and ancient passageways of Venice, Italy in search of a new book project. A meditation on artistry and craft, REMNANTS OF MEMORY celebrates beauty in the overlooked, anonymous objects we pass every day.

The Silent Pilgrim

Directed by Jakub Blank

THE SILENT PILGRIM follows a Polish immigrant—who shepherds a community retreat in Erie, Pennsylvania—as he spends his free moments wandering the shores of Lake Erie collecting gnarls of driftwood, later molding them into art. Shot and directed by the artist’s son and punctuated by extracts of Robert Henri’s “The Art Spirit,” PILGRIM explores the act of making art. It asks us to consider how our lives are twisted and shaped by the world around us, and in the process, reintroducing us—even those most estranged from it—to the artist within.
