This event has ended.

Anton Kern Gallery presents the world premiere of Ellen Berkenblit’s first film, Lines Roar, at The Drawing Center.

Concentrating on the explosive nature of Berkenblit’s line, the film presents a look into her artistic process and features familiar motifs from her paintings and drawings: a long-nosed female, a tiger, a stiletto. Lines Roar intermingles autobiographical footage taken by Berkenblit in both her home and studio. Also interlaced throughout the film are photographs of Berkenblit’s family and images, taken by her father, who was an amateur photographer and chemist. The result is a film that combines Berkenblit’s life with her work, an intimate look at what drives the artist’s practice.

Lines Roar was created by Ellen Berkenblit in collaboration with directors Mónica Brand and Francisco Lopez of Mogollon. The score of the film features music by Zeena Parkins. This film was commissioned by The Drawing Center and co-produced by Anton Kern Gallery and organized by The Drawing Center’s Executive Director, Brett Littman.
