August 6 at 8 PM: Witkin & Witkin
United States/Mexico 2018 – 90 minutes, In English. Director: Trisha Ziff.
Witkin & Witkin explores the worlds of somewhat estranged identical twins who just happen to be among the pre-eminent artists of their time, working in different though related visual arts. Joel-Peter is a renowned photographer of arranged, dream-like images; Jerome is a life-long educator and painter whom some have compared to Edward Hopper. Filmed over four years, Witkin & Witkin spans a crucial period in the brothers’ lives. You will not forget the art of either of these men—or this film and the fascinating questions it raises about art and the meaning of brotherhood.
