Filmmaker Phil Solomon introduces a screening of his 56-minute epic tone poem, American Falls (2000-2012), followed by a close analysis and Q&A session.
Commissioned by the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington DC as a multimedia installation for the museum’s grand Rotunda, American Falls will be screened as a single-channel triptych. Inspired by Frederic Church’s 1857 masterpiece Niagara and by Washington’s monumental war memorials, American Falls explores the aspirations and struggles that lie at the heart of the American Dream.
