On June 11th we will have our last Dinner and a Doc before the summer break. We will screen Pietra Brettkelly’s The Art Star and the Sudanese Twins, which follows Vanessa Beecroft, an installation artist who works primarily with the human form, as she goes through the process of adopting two orphaned Sudanese twins, Madit and Mongor Akot, exploring how this decision changes her art. Just as a warning to parents, the film does contain some nudity. Here are a few links for those who would like to see more about the film:
We will be meeting at First Baptist Church, Guelph, which is located at 255 Woolwich Street, eating at 5:30 and beginning the film at about 6:00. Please post a comment or send me an email to let me know if you will be coming and if you would like to bring something to contribute to the meal.
Here is the schedule for upcoming months:
