Los Angeles-based artist and 2017 MacArthur Genius Fellow Njideka Akunyili Crosby draws upon her experience of moving from Nigeria to the United States while maintaining ties to her family in Africa and building relationships in America. Layers of paint, fabric, and photographic transfers not only energize the interiors and figures depicted in the artist’s works but serve as a metaphor for the complex merging of cultural backgrounds that contribute to Akunyili Crosby’s sense of self.

“This is a superb film.” David Edelstein, New York Magazine. Fourteen-year-old Joe is the only child of a housewife (Carey Mulligan) and a golf pro (Jake Gyllenhaal) in a small town in 1960s Montana. When the father loses his job, he joins the firefighters battling an uncontrolled forest fire raging close to the Canadian border. His wife and son are left to fend for themselves. Suddenly forced into the role of an adult, Joe witnesses his mother’s struggle as she tries to keep her head above water.
