Calling all film lovers: Join us at the Museum this Tuesday, October 21, 5:30–8:00 p.m., for a free film screening, panel discussion, and drinks reception. We’ll be celebrating the US premiere of Carlos Amorales’s 2014 film “The Man Who Did All Things Forbidden." Inspired by Roberto Bolaño’s novel "Estrella Distante," Amorales’s film examines Bolaño’s view of the Chilean avant-garde and revels in the surreal imagery of his writing. After the film, stay for a conversation with the artist, Andréa Picard (Film Curator, Toronto International Film Festival), and author Reinaldo Laddaga, followed by a reception. Reserve your free ticket today.
Support for this event has been generously provided by Rocío and Boris Hirmas.
