Post-screening dialogue with BRITTANY BORGHI, LEAH VONDERHEIDE and THOMAS AGRAN.

Brittany will graduate with her MFA from the University of Iowa's Nonfiction Writing Program this spring. A former broadcast journalist, Brittany is deeply interested in the ways that film can capture the essayist impulse. She is currently at work on a book-length project about menacing things in western Pennsylvania, which is also her home.

Leah is a Visiting Assitant Professor of Film Studies in the Department of Cinematic Arts at the University of Iowa. Her recent book review of Delphine Benezet's The Cinema of Agnes Varda: Resistance and Eclecticism can be found in SubStance.

Thomas was born in Stanford, Kentucky. He attended Grinell College, graduating with a BA in Studio Art. While more permanently residing in Iowa City, he is currently an MFA candidate at Indiana University's Hery Radford Hope School of Fine Arts in Bloomington, Indiana

"So fun, so beautiful, so eager to entertain and also enlighten; like all of Varda's documentaries it seems totally effortless."
- Joe Gibson. The Audio Assault

After returning to Los Angeles from France in 1979, Anges Varda created this kaleidoscopic documentary about the striking murals that decorate the city. Bursting with color and vitality, the film is as much an invigorating study of community and diversity as it is an essential catalog of unusual public art.
