Art goes to the movies with 21c Oklahoma City’s Filmography, a free monthly film series at 21c Oklahoma City in partnership with deadCenter Film and the OKC Film Society. Filmography takes place on the third Friday of each month.
In July, join us for a screening of The Queen of Versailles, a story about a self-made billionaire family with their larger-than-life plan to build the biggest house in America and subsequent struggle in the wake of the economic crisis. The film visually documents the American Dream: its values and lifestyles, its relationship to home ownership and the ways it has encouraged all Americans to reach beyond their economic means. A familiar story writ large, the film is an epic narrative that speaks to anyone who has had to adapt to the economic crisis.
The film is directed by acclaimed documentary photographer/filmmaker, Lauren Greenfield. Greenfield is considered a preeminent chronicler of youth culture, gender and consumerism, as a result of her monographs “Girl Culture,” “Fast Forward,” “THIN” and other photographic works, which have been widely published, exhibited and collected by leading museums around the world.
Event is free and open to the public.
