Description

ExcavationDecember 9
Sunday, 2:00 pm
Second Sunday Culture Films Series
Excavation (2011)

The small family farm in the Midwest has become exotic and peripheral to the majority of Americans who live on the coasts. In this highly personal essay, filmmaker Ellen Knechel's grandmother is moving out of her home as the family farm in Indiana begins closing down its operations. The question of what to keep, and what to leave behind, when the work of several lifetimes come to a close, is central to this subtle and poignant film. Knechel and Penn Museum film archivist Kate Pourshariati introduce the program, sponsored by Penn Cinema Studies. Free with Museum admission.
