Movies at the Museum: Literary Classics, Adapted Modern
A good story can be endlessly reimagined. In this summer’s film series, Aspen Film and the AAM present three films that adapt classic literary works through a modern lens. These cinematic stories are infused with bold artistic expression, and ultimately reveal the human desire across time and cultures to make sense of our world. Each film stands as a unique work while connecting to larger allegories told from the ancient world through to the recent release of Native Son (2019), directed by AAM-exhibiting artist Rashid Johnson.
