7:00 pm doors, music and drinks, 8:00 pm film
The Brattle Theater, 40 Brattle Street, Cambridge MA
Nancy Andrews has been making intuitive, idiosyncratic, hybrid films for many years, rendered with her characteristic humor and inhabited by imaginative characters who are at times visionary but always social misfits. Her two new films, “On a Phantom Limb” and “Behind the Eyes are the Ears,” continue in this tradition, but here the artist focuses on the self and her own states of consciousness. A critical illness in 2005 plunged her deeper into an exploration of the unknown, the invisible, the what-lies-beyond.
The evening will include a discussion of delirium with the artist and Michael Belkin, M.D., Brigham and Women's Hospital, Division of Vascular Surgery and Samata Sharma, M.D., Clinical Fellow in Psychiatry, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
