MOVIES AT THE MUSEUM
This winter, the AAM and Aspen Film present the Movies at the Museum program “Two Places,” featuring films that provide diverse perspectives on places that are often defined by stereotypes: Los Angeles and Tel Aviv. Complementing the nuanced looks at these places by AAM exhibiting artists Zoe Crosher and Thomas Struth, the pairing of a short film and feature-length film presents refreshing alternatives to clichéd representations of two global locations.
