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 pop band 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."
*Note: This film is for adult audiences. Some images in the film may be disturbing.
There will be a discussion and Q & A with Sara Broos, the filmmaker, following the screenings.
Co-presented with the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul. The filmmaker discussion will be moderated by their Director Susan Smoluchowski.
$15 per person
