Filmmaker Sara Broos - Screening & Directors Commentary

Sara Broos, the award-winning filmmaker who is visiting ASI for the opening of the exhibition Karin Broos: Still Life, will present and discuss her films Reflections and Homeland.

Reflections is about Sara’s relationship with her mother, painter Karin Bross, and their seaside trip to Latvia. The resulting film is a poetic and personal journey about fragments of life: memories, dreams, the subconscious, sorrows, shame, aging and self-hatred.  The film reflects the attempt to hold on to something, while everything is in constant change.

Homeland depicts a female Syrian refugee who ends up in a forest in Sweden. Music becomes the link between her past and the present as she listens to the Norwegian popband A-ah, a group she had heard during her childhood in Damascus. This is a story about the power of music and the meaning of the word "homeland."

There will be a discussion and Q & A with Sara Broos, the filmmaker, following the screenings.

Co-presented with the Minneapolis St. Paul Film Society

$15 per person
