White Sky 
Director: Susanna Helke 
Thursday October 8, 7:30 PM 


White Sky refers to the cloud of white dust that arrives to the Russian town of Monchegorsk every morning from the local nickle mine, obscuring the sky. Focusing on the day-to-day lives of a family who live and work in the town, White Skypresents a view of human relationships and adaptability rather than of ecological disaster. The screening will be followed by a talk by director and film theorist Susanna Helke. 

Direction, script, editing: Susanna Helke and Virpi Suutari

Sophie Kahn & Lisa Parra, Body/Traces 
Level 4

Illuminating the physical presence and disappearance of the body, this work addresses the questions: What happens to the body in motion when it becomes a still image? And what becomes of that image when it is returned to the moving body whence it came?

Open Monday through Saturday 
Noon - 6 PM 
Free + Open to the Public


The posters in Mads Lynnerup's exhibition "Take a Day for Yourself!" signed by the artist are available for purchase by request. Please contact the Box Office by Friday October 30 to reserve yours!
