Binghamton University Harpur Cinema Presents: Film About A Father Who

November 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$4

Harpur Cinema Presents: FILM ABOUT A FATHER WHO

 Lynne Sachs, United States, 2020, 74 minutes

Friday, 11 Nov & Sunday, 13 Nov: Lecture Hall 6, 7:30 PM. Doors open at 7:00 pm. $4 Single Admission.

Over a period of 35 years between 1984 and 2019, filmmaker Lynne Sachs shot 8 and 16mm film, videotape and digital images of her father, Ira Sachs Sr., a bon vivant and pioneering businessman from Park City, Utah. Film About a Father Who is her attempt to understand the web that connects a child to her parent and a sister to her siblings.

With a nod to the Cubist renderings of a face, Sachs’ cinematic exploration of her father offers simultaneous, sometimes contradictory, views of one seemingly unknowable man who is publicly the uninhibited center of the frame yet privately ensconced in secrets. With this meditation on fatherhood and masculinity, Sachs allows herself and her audience to see beneath the surface of the skin, beyond the projected reality. As the startling facts mount, she discovers more about her father than she had ever hoped to reveal.
