Join us every first Thursday of the month from Memorial Day to Labor Day for a monthly film screening curated by Standard Fantastic Pictures’ (SFP) Omar Lopex. The screening will include a feature film inspired by our special exhibition Celia Álvarez Muñoz: Breaking the Binding and local SFP shorts. Like Álvarez Muñoz, Standard Fantastic Pictures examines the nature of the border and embraces an ‘artivist’ (art + activist) perspective in artmaking.

The double feature will include feature film The Saddest Music in the World (2003) by Guy Maddin, and local SFP film Ana, Who They Pulled Out of the River (2022) by Omar Lopex.
