Shevaun Mizrahi Distant Constellations

Shevaun Mizrahi is a Turkish-American documentary filmmaker, named one of Filmmaker Magazine's 25 New Faces of Film in 2015. She received a Jury Special Mention Award at the 2017 Locarno Film Festival for her film Distant Constellation, as well as a 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship.

Distant Constellation, described by Vadim Rizov of Filmmaker Magazine as "a bracingly rigorous and visceral experience," was shot in an Instabul retirement home, and explores themes of aging and memory. Nominated for a 2018 Independent Spirit Award, the film was produced by Deniz Buga and Shelly Grizim.

Mizrahi will screen Distant Constellation for the audience asynchronously and will join us in person via Zoom for a post-screening discussion and Q&A.
