Today: Cinema Society returns with ‘Cardboard Bernini’


The Asheville Cinema Society will screen The Cardboard Bernini on Tuesday, December 4.  The film begins at 7:15 PM at the Asheville Community Theatre on 35 East Walnut St.  Advance tickets are available online and remaining seats will be sold inside the Theatre lobby beginning at 6:45.

From the press release:

Follow the life and work of renowned artist James Grashow as he spends four years building a giant cardboard fountain with the intention of putting it outside to dissolve. You won’t believe the incredible artistic detail of Grashow’s work nor will you experience another psychological journey in creating a unique work of beauty that is intended for destruction.

The 80 minute documentary was a standout from the recent Asheville Cinema Festival.  Director Olympia Stone will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.
