IU Cinema Director Jon Vickers will present the film and share a conversation with Director Jawshing Arthur Liou after the screening.
Liou is an artist with a background in photography, digital media, film, and journalism. Many of his videos do not contain clear narratives but are meditative in nature. Using sources ranging from landscapes and oil paint to the human body, much of Liou’s work is related to notions of impermanence, human tragedy, and spiritual sanctuary. Liou is currently a Herman Wells Professor of Digital Art at Indiana University.

Curated by Jawshing Arthur Liou of the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design, with support from IU Cinema. This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.
