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.
