GlobeDocs: Museum Town

GLOBEDOCS FILM FESTIVAL

FILMMAKER IN PERSON!

Co-Presented by IFFBoston

Director: Jennifer Trainer • Producers: Jennifer Trainer, Noah Bashevkin, Ivy Meeropol • Year: 2019 • Length: 76 minutes

MUSEUM TOWN tells the unique story of the power of art to transform a desolate post-industrial city. In 2017, MASS MoCA became the largest museum for contemporary art in the world—but just three decades before, its vast brick buildings were the abandoned relics of a massive shuttered factory.

Threaded with interviews with celebrated artists including Nick Cave and David Byrne, and featuring narration by Meryl Streep, MUSEUM TOWN traces the remarkable story of how a small rural Massachusetts town went from economic collapse to art mecca.

Moderator: Murray Whyte, Boston Globe art critic
Guest: Director Jennifer Trainer
