This weekend in Chicago could be called Billy Woodberry Weekend since the
independent filmmaker and his works will be featured in two important screenings both taking place this Saturday.
First, Woodberry will make an appearance at the Black Cinema House in Chicago to screen
and discuss segments from the epic length installation video The Architect the Ants and The Bees which he created in 2004
The video documents the construction of the Frank Gehry designed Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles and not only the effect
that the project had on the city and “concentrating as well on the gender and
racial makeup of the workforce that built it”.
The screening which is co-presented by the William H. Bronson and Grayce Slovet Mitchell Lecture Series at the School of the Art
Institute of Chicago will take place this Saturday May 25 at the Black
Cinema House located in 6901 S. Dorchester
Admission is free but you need to RSVP a seat and you can
do so HERE.
But this is not the only screening that Woodberry is involved
with and on that same day and for that info just look above…
