Brenda Longfellow at Carbon Arc 

Award-winning filmmaker shows her work tonight

Tonight at the Carbon Arc Cinema in the Khyber (1588 Barrington Street), filmmaker and York University film studies professor Brenda Longfellow will be showing three of her many films followed by an audience Q & A.

On the docket will be Our Marilyn (1987), the very short Carpe Diem (2010) and Tina in Mexico (2002). The latter has done well critically, winning multiple film festival awards in Canada and the States.

Tina in Mexico is an hour-long documentary chronicling avant-garde photographer and silent film star Tina Modotti. The setting is Mexico in the 20s and includes reenactments and pictures taken by Modotti and her lover, Edward Weston. Tonight will be Halifax's first look at the piece.
