Join us for a 3-night movie series that explores compelling themes related to the exhibitions currently on view at The Gund Gallery: Sound of Metal (2019) on Thursday, Aug. 31; Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012) on Friday, Sept. 1; and The Monuments Men (2014) on Saturday, Sept. 2. Films begin at 7 p.m. in the Community Foundation Theater. Movie candy provided.

Sound of Metal follows a heavy metal drummer (Riz Ahmed) through his experience of hearing loss. The film reshapes our understanding of typical binaries like sound and silence, encouraging us to feel how music can affect us in different ways. Artist Christine Sun Kim’s works in Oh Me Oh My reference her lived experience of Deafness in relation to musical notations. She often challenges the conventional notions of sound and language, pushing visitors to reconsider how they perceive and interpret the auditory world.
