FILM & TALK: Sanctuary

January 3, 6 pm - 8 pm

 

 

2019, Documentary, 52 minutes
Director: Lillian Ball

Join Artists Choose Artists juror and environmental activist Lillian Ball for her full film premiere about the Lumbini Crane Sanctuary within the Sacred Garden in Nepal where Siddhartha Gautama was born and charismatic young monk Venerable Metteyya as he seeks to reverse plans to replace it with hotels and a meditation center. Followed by a conversation with Ball and Parrish Director Terrie Sultan.

An ecological artist and pro-activist who works with wetland issues from interdisciplinary backgrounds in anthropology, ethnographic film, and sculpture, Lillian Ball (American, b. 1955) believes that innovative artwork with stakeholders on conservation initiatives benefits wildlife, communities, and visitors. Her WATERWASH® public projects along the Bronx River and Mattituck Inlet combine native habitat restoration, stormwater remediation, and preservation. Ball’s documentary Sanctuary depicts efforts by a Buddhist monk to preserve native flora and fauna in Lumbini, Nepal, to protect the Sarus cranes nesting at Buddha’s birthplace, endangered by over-development. Ball exhibits and lectures at international institutions including at Kathmandu’s Taragaon Museum; Seville Biennale; and Reina Sofia, Madrid. Awards include NYFA Fellowships, Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, and NEA grant.

 

Friday Nights are made possible, in part, by Presenting Sponsor:
Additional support provided by The Corcoran Group and Sandy and Stephen Perlbinder.
