Images Cinema and the Williams College Museum of Art, in conjunction with the exhibition “Frantz Zéphirin: Selected Works,” are hosting a screening of the documentary In the Eye of the Spiral.
In the Eye of the Spiral details an artistic and philosophical movement born in Haiti called Spiralism, which has spread across the arts, touching upon spirituality and even politics. Featuring narration by Annie Lennox and the music of Brian Eno, the film sheds light on the state of a country hit by corruption and natural disaster, and the incredible will of Haitian artists who produce art as a personal form of redemption and survival.
The screening will be introduced by the film’s director, Raynald Leconte, along with Jordan Horton, Mellon Curatorial Fellow, MA ’23, supporting curator to Tomm El-Saieh, who organized the Zéphirin exhibition. A Q&A with Leconte will follow the screening.
The screening is open to the public and admission is free until max capacity, with tickets courtesy of Williams College Museum of Art. Frantz Zéphirin: Selected Works is on view until December 4, 2022.
