This screening is rescheduled from August, where Cinema at the Museum presented a series of films that look at the art of documentary and the methods in which the genre reflects and connects the world of art to the screen. These films dive into themes of camaraderie, resilience, decolonization, innovation, and representation, all through the lens of documentarians showcasing ways in which artists create work that impacts the communities around them.
