The extraordinary story of Herbert Vogel, a postal clerk, and Dorothy Vogel, a librarian, who managed to build one of the most important contemporary art collections in history with very modest means.

DLCL Fall Film Series Screening: Microcosmos Claude Nuridsany

October 18 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Oscillating between the grotesque, the comedic, and the sublime, Nuridsany’s microscopic look into the intimate lives of insects and other tiny life forms challenges what we have come to expect from a nature film.  What Microcosmos’ incredible camera work allows us to see in this too-often dismissed world provokes our deeply-held views about the non-human and forces us to confront the complex insect lives we often turn away from in horror, disgust, and disdain.  (Screened in French with English subtitles)

Riedelsheimer’s documentary Rivers and Tides offers a rare glimpse of the creations of British environmentalist artist Andy Goldsworthy.  Goldsworthy’s works, created in natural settings from local materials including rocks, leaves, icicles, and mud, challenge notions of the proper setting, audience, and purpose of art, even as arguably some of the most natural artworks one might create.  The film Rivers and Tides allows these uniquely fleeting works to be preserved on screen as it dives deeply into the creative process of…
