Event description

Description

Presented by the Wolf Humanities Center and the Cinema and Media Studies Program in collaboration with Lightbox Film Center at International House Philadelphia.

Grey Gardens
(dir. Albert Maysles, David Maysles, Ellen Hovde, Muffie Meyer, 1975, 95 min.)

Direct cinema filmmaking documents the once glorious and now ruined Long Island estate that houses an eccentric mother-daughter duo. This 28-room decaying house, infested with rodents and cobwebs, provides the material backdrop for the inhabitants and their nostalgia for past wealth, cotillions, and swimming parties.

Film to be followed by conversation.



Working Through Matter is a program of the Wolf Humanities Center's 2018-19 Forum on Stuff. Screenings are free and open to the public.
