VIRTUAL Public Art Documentary Film Series: Yarn
January 14, 2021 @ 6:00 pmFree
Palm Desert’s Art Documentary Film Series returns for its 13th year in 2021 with a lineup of compelling films designed for lovers of inspiring and thought-provoking cinema. The free, art-themed documentary series begins January 14 with an online screening of YARN. This unique documentary introduces viewers to the artists who are redefining the tradition of knit and crochet, bringing yarn out of the house and into the world. YARN weaves together wool graffiti artists, circus performers, and structural designers into a visually-striking look at the women who are making a creative stance while building one of modern art’s hottest trends.
The City is especially happy to have the opportunity to share YARN and Jean-Michel Basquiat – The Radiant Child, coming up in March, both of which had been scheduled to be screened as part of Palm Desert’s 2020 film series, but were canceled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2021 documentary film series is presented by the City of Palm Desert Public Art Department and the University of California, Riverside Palm Desert Center. Register online in advance through the UCR Palm Desert Events website. You’ll receive emailed links to screen the documentary in advance on Vimeo, as well as a link to join the Zoom discussion about the film at the scheduled date and time.
