ZMA CINEMA | The Cardboard Bernini

ZMA CINEMA | Documentary Art Films
The ZMA is delighted to partner with Reel Meal and Ohio University Zanesville to present a series of documentary films that investigate the issues facing contemporary artists. Join us for lively post-film discussion.

The Cardboard Bernini (2012)
“My film is an intimate glimpse of an artist at work on what he considers might be his 'final epic,'” stated filmmaker Olympia Stone.

This documentary explores the work of sculptor and illustrator James Grashow during the creation of Corrugated Fountain, an assemblage of figures inspired by the Roman fountains of the Baroque sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini. This film examines the connection between creation, destruction, and mortality.
