The Wonderful World of Stefany Anne Golberg
Sunday, June 28, 2015, 3:00PM - 5:00PM
SPACES presents three short films by Stefany Anne Golberg: Poland, Antwerp, and Sri Lanka.
Morgan Mies, SPACES art writer in residence will introduce the films, providing a critical context. Both Stefany and Morgan will be available for a Q&A after the screening.
In Poland, the filmmaker looks for her grandmother's childhood home - which may or may not exist - in modern-day Lublin. The ghost of Marie Curie is her companion.
In Antwerp, the filmmaker wanders the city searching for a lost cat, musing on old maps and the experiences of Abraham Ortelius, creator of the modern atlas. The film considers the fragility of Belgium, forever the stomping ground of European wars.
From the summer of 2011 to the summer of 2012, Stefany Anne Golberg lived in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka tells the story of a country just two years past the end of a 30-year civil war and a filmmaker who wonders what the hell she's doing there.
Psychological and literary, teetering on the line between fact and fiction, the films of Stefany Anne Golberg are like a cross between Jacques Cousteau and W G Sebald. Set to music composed and performed by the artist, Golberg's films are visually hypnotic reflections about being a stranger in strange lands.
