Monday, December 10th at 7pm at General Assembly (3858 Walnut Street) with artist/musician John Grant live and in-person!
Denver Film Society is proud to present The Modern School of Film's acclaimed discussion series In:Pictures where artists from the worlds of film, music, literature, art and culture share and explore three films that have most-shaped their life, their work, and their art. Featured in this session is a polymathic singer, writer, musician, and driving force of Denver iconoclasts The Czars, John Grant. Join us as John revisits the films that have turned his corners and continue to resonate as the frontiers of his art expand with each new work. John is an international creator who returns to the artistic home where he cut both his teeth and his taste - Denver - a region of the world that remains a prism for how and why he creates. And his love of cinema is stuff of legion.
