Film Screening: PLENTY 9: BOUVIER AND PRUSAKOVA / Tuesday 26 July 2011, 7pm
BOUVIER AND PRUSAKOVA
Marya Alford, USA, 2005, 16mm, colour, sound, 25 minutes
A beautiful, simple, and moving film that subtly parallels the lives of Jacqueline Kennedy and Marina Oswald. The narration is drawn from Marina’s testimony to the Warren Commission; visually, the film is composed of shots of pink cherry blossoms against a blue sky.
The screening series PLENTY proposes a new way of looking at artists’ films by showing only a single work, regardless of its duration. Each film is given the freedom to unfold on its own terms, and the viewer is given the time and space to consider it.
PLENTY is a free monthly screening series selected by Mark Webber. It forms part of the “Brief Habits” programme curated by Shama Khanna, supported by Arts Council England.
