GRETA GERWIG: THE ART OF AWKWARD AT LIGHT HOUSE AND PÁLÁS
Greta Gerwig: The Art of Awkward will showcase her work both in front of and behind the camera. From the charming Frances Ha to the heart-warming Little Women, Greta weaves a rich tapestry in all she puts her hand to.
Alice Black, Head of Programming for Light House Group commented on curating the season:
“Watching a Greta Gerwig film can often feel like spending time with your best friend – there’s a relatable-ness and ease to her writing, directing and acting that makes it seem effortless. Her characters are familiar, determined but often lost, ambitious but unfettered as they take us on a journey with them. We cannot wait to see the world she has created for Barbie on our screens, and hope audiences enjoy this chance to delve into how she mastered her craft.”
The films that will feature in this season from July 1st – 19th are:
ISLE OF DOGS
20TH CENTURY WOMEN
*Denotes titles playing Light House only
Don’t be fooled by the effortless humour and warmth Gerwig brings to screen, each hesitation is meticulously crafted, each stumble is part of the process, this is the art of being awkward and it is why she is so well loved.
Designer Conor Merriman has brought this season to life through specially commissioned artwork.
