FILM | 'Photo City' screening

by

It's no secret that Rochester's history is seriously connected with the history of photography. But you might yet learn something new at this week's screening of "Photo City," a documentary on our city and its ingrained relationship to photography and film. Written and directed by John Murphy and Traolach Ó Murchú, and produced by Sorcha Glackin for Blacksheep Productions, the work explores our shift from a company town to the digital age, focusing on the lives of Rochester's photo community, from former factory workers to the father of digital photography. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with George Eastman Museum staff members Todd Gustavson and Nick Brandreth, and museum trustee Steve Sasson.

"Photo City" screening will take place on Friday, December 21, at 7:30 p.m. in the Eastman Museum's Dryden Theatre, 900 East Avenue. $10 general admission, $7 members, and $5 students with ID. 327-4800; eastman.org.
