The Art Star & The Sudanese Twins

Vanessa Beecroft is obsessively determined to adopt Sudanese twin orphans. The Art Star and the Sudanese Twins follows Beecroft for sixteen months as she exposes the truth about her life with an often brutal honesty– her creative process, her struggle with depression, her volatile relationship with her husband, and her love for the twins. The documentary raises questions about exploitation, culture clash, and the imposition of the West on Africa.

USA 2008.109 min, Dir: Pietra Brettkelly

Prior to the feature screening will be the short film The Things We Taught Our Daughters: Helen Knott. (2015) Dir: Coty Savard.

There will be a Q&A after the screening.
