The Weatherspoon presents a film screening that is part of the city’s official 17 Days festival event.
The screening of “Erased James Franc” will be Thursday, Sept 22, 6:30 p.m.
Artist and filmmaker Carter’s 2008 film “Erased James Franco” features actor James Franco’s reenactment of his past film roles and those of others including Julianne Moore and Rock Hudson. Denied the charged interplay with other actors, Franco adopts a strangely flat affect, imbuing the film with a quality that Carter describes as “like bloodletting or a kind of cleansing … a building up and tearing down, simultaneously.”
This program is free and open to the public. Seating is limited. Doors open 30 minutes prior.
Xandra Eden, curator of exhibitions, will give a post-screening talk on Carter’s films and multi-media works in conjunction with the exhibition “Persona: A Body in Parts.”
