Lost and Unmade: The Films of Bruce Checefsky

March 20 @ 5:30 pm EDT

The John J. McDonough Museum of Art, Youngstown State University’s center of contemporary art, is excited to announce Lost and Unmade: The Films of Bruce Checefsky. This screening of some of Checefsky’s most popular works will be held on Wednesday, March 20 beginning at 5:30pm in the McDonough Auditorium. Entry to the screening is free and open to the public.

Checefsky is a filmmaker, photographer, and writer whose independent films have been shown around the world. Looking to films that were lost, destroyed, or conceived but never made, Checefsky recreates and reimagines abstract and avant-garde shorts. He focuses on pre-1920s and post-1935s films, with special interest in those made by Jewish filmmakers that were destroyed during the Second World War. The screening will include some of Checefsky’s most recent films from the 1940s and 1960s. These include a remake of Maya Deren’s lost film, Witch’s Cradle, a collaboration between Deren and Marcel Duchamp, and Andy Warhol’s confiscated film from 1963 titles Andy Warhol Films Jack Smith Filming Normal Love.

More information is available by calling the McDonough Museum at 330-941-1400.
