Life and Dreams in the Burgh to Screen at City of Asylum
At 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 3, the City of Asylum on Pittsburgh's North Side will screen a film that focuses on Pittsburgh and Pittsburghers. The premier screening is free of charge with advance registration.
"Life and Dreams in the Burgh" weaves together factual and fictional stories to present a multi-layered meditation on Pittsburgh's peculiar character--what haunts us and what we dream of, how we live and how we would like to live.
In the fall of 2015 Tatiana Istomina was a visiting artist at City of Asylum. While here she did lengthy interviews with fourteen Pittsburghers from all walks of life (an artist, a medical student, a dishwasher, a foster mother of six, and others) to explore the collective consciousness of our city.
In addition to the interviews, the film includes digital animation, found footage and video imagery created by two Pittsburgh-based artists, Sofia Sandoval and Emily Newman.
Tatiana Isomina will be present for a Q & A after the film. To register, go to https://cityofasylumpittsburgh.secure.force.com/ticket/#sections_a0F3100000NMF86EAH
