A New Film about Art and Community
On December 1 at 7:00pm William Kunitz will be screening his new film “I Dream the Colors: The Artists of Spindleworks” at Kresge Auditorium in the Visual Arts Center at Bowdoin College. This preview is open to the public.
Spindleworks is an art program for developmentally disabled adults in Brunswick, Maine. It’s alive with color and art. Photographed over two years, the film focuses on the artists of Spindleworks and their astonishing creativity. Most importantly, it is the story of their abilities rather than their disabilities.
Spindleworks began in Brunswick thirty-seven years ago. The town has embraced it from the beginning and has become another important character in the film. Spindleworkers are both frequent customers of and work at many of the businesses. Said one business owner, “I think that Spindleworks lets people see that there is more to a person than meets the eye….and it humanizes us a little bit here in Brunswick.”
Mr. Kunitz has been making films since he was fourteen. His most recent film is “Goranson Farm: An Uncertain Harvest.” It was chosen as a selection for the 8th Annual Camden International Film Festival and presented on MPBN television.
