• BRUNCH starts @ 11:30am
• FILM starts @ 12:30pm
• POST-FILM DISCUSSION immediately after screening with artist Audrey Flack and co-director/producer Deborah Shaffer.



At 88 years-old, Audrey Flack holds a unique place in the history of contemporary art in America. She has been a trailblazer, from her early days as an Abstract Expressionist in the 50’s, to her successful career as the sole female Photorealist in the 70’s, to her monumental public sculptures of recent decades. QUEEN OF HEARTS follows Flack as she takes her work in a brand new direction and reveals her long-term struggles as the mother of child with autism. Flack has something deep and genuine to communicate to the world as an artist, a teacher, a woman and a mother. She is a provocateur and a rebel, an example and an inspiration. QUEEN OF HEARTS is a moving portrait of an artist who is still testing, still experimenting, still searching.
