The San Francisco International Film Festival is well under way. We love film festivals because movies, like us, tell stories.
Many countries are well represented in the film festival, and there are so many enticing titles that we couldn’t begin to list them here.
However, here’s a tiny taste of SFIFF’s thoughtful programming. The first two photos are from The Act of Killing, a flabbergasting documentary about the the Indonesian genocide of the mid-1960s. NOT for the faint of heart.
The second two photos are from Chimeras, also a documentary about two contemporary artists who are grasping with their place and purpose in a new China.
ARTINFO’s Kyle Chayka and Tom Chen visited legendary Chinese artist Xu Bing’s studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to talk about the artist’s tumultuous life and his current projects.
We LOVE this guy, especially since he gave a great talk at our museum a few years ago. We’re working with him again on for our upcoming calligraphy exhibition.
