TRAVEL SHORTS BY BOB KRIST

 

Tuesday and Wednesday, March 20 and 21, 2018 at 4:00pm

90 minutes

Meet National Geographic photographer/filmmaker Bob Krist

 

 

ABOUT THE FILMS:

 

Join National Geographic photographer Bob Krist for a 90-minute tour of the world in a series of short, cinematic films from three continents. Krist’s award-winning films document traditional ways of life that are under threat from the pressures of contemporary society.

 

We start close to home, riding along with the cowboys and cowgirls on Guanajuato’s Cabalgata of Cristo Rey and wander further afield to witness the thousand-year tradition of “rettir” in the highlands of Iceland, the beautiful white horses of France’s Camargue, the struggle of small boat fishermen in tiny Cornish villages, and the crazy and controversial Mardi Gras practices in rural Lousiana, as well as looks at exotic Burma, and the Day of the Dead tradition in Oaxaca.

THE 100 YEARS SHOW profiles abstract minimalist pioneer artist Carmen Herrera as she enjoys artistic success and fame that literally took a lifetime to happen. Carmen Herrera is one of the oldest working artists today. She was a pioneering abstract painter in the '40s and '50s, but only recently found the recognition that eluded her for most of her career, as she approaches her 100th birthday.   (29 minutes)
