WorldCanvass May


On Tuesday, May 5, Joan Kjaer and her guests closed the 2015 WorldCanvass season at FilmScene with a fascinating look at the transformational power of cinema and its unique ability to inspire, provoke, and challenge preconceptions. WorldCanvass guests discussed how cultures are explored and projected through film and shared their own international experiences that have either reinforced or contradicted cinematic representations.

Below is a recap of the event with access to see and hear the full program. If you have questions regarding WorldCanvass, please contact
