Q&A with Carroll and Lena Dunham. Carroll Dunham will be signing copies of his new book Into Words: The Selected Writings of Carroll Dunham following the screening.
"As a father and daughter, we've never been shy about the content we watch together. No covered eyes or embarrassment. We like to watch complex vaguely demented stories and discuss them in depth over organic frozen pizzas. Strange Days satisfies all our urges: surreal, visceral, with a soupçon of science fiction that doesn't obscure the human element. The themes of Kathryn Bigelow's film have never been more relevant (racism, rape, power and its evil twin: abuse) and we are thrilled to present it as a team and explore the themes while linking them to the history of modern art. As a family we care deeply about constructive creative conversation, without obscuring truths or pretending to be unaware of each other's internal struggles. Strange Days was an early tool for communication on big themes. Let's keep it up."
