Film and Art: Murs Murs

Thursday, November 10th, 2022

7:30 PM–9:00 PM

After returning to Los Angeles from France in 1979, Agnès Varda created this kaleidoscopic documentary about the striking murals that decorate the city. Bursting with color and vitality, Mur Murs (1982, 82 minutes) is as much an invigorating study of community and diversity as it is an essential catalog of unusual public art.
Free.

Film and Art: F For Fake

Thursday, November 17th, 2022

7:30 PM–9:00 PM

Trickery. Deceit. Magic. In F for Fake (1975, 88 minutes), a free-form sort-of documentary by Orson Welles, the legendary filmmaker (and self-described charlatan) gleefully reengages with the central preoccupation of his career: the tenuous lines between illusion and truth, art and lies. Beginning with portraits of the world-renowned art forger Elmyr de Hory and his equally devious biographer, Clifford Irving, Welles exposes and revels in fakery and fakers of all stripes—not the least of whom is Welles himself. F for Fake is an inspired prank and a clever examination of the place of duplicity in cinema and art.
Free.
