From "Guest of Cindy Sherman"
The NW Film Center presents a series of films on art & art documentaries. The series begins on March 5th with a screening of Guest of Cindy Sherman
, a controversial documentary about artist Cindy Sherman. Begun as an interview for his cable access show "Gallery Beat," Paul Hasegawa-Overacker and Sherman fell in - and then out - of love. The film documents his painful 15 year journey in Sherman's shadow, and gained notoriety when Sherman separated herself from the project, denouncing the final product as something akin to character assassination. There are over 10 more exciting films in the series, which runs from March 5 through April 4.
