ART AND POLITICS FILM SERIES
Williamstown, 6 p.m.

The Clark Art Institute’s Art and Politics Film Series begins this fall with free screenings of two documentaries in the Clark’s auditorium, located in the Manton Research Center. The Art and Politics Film Series is organized by Robert Wiesenberger, the Clark’s associate curator of contemporary projects, and Horace Ballard, curator of American art at the Williams College Museum of Art. Each film begins with a brief introduction and is followed by light refreshments and conversation in the Manton Reading Room. On Dec. 11, view "Nightcleaners" (United Kingdom, 1975), directed by the Berwick Street Collective. Intending to make a straightforward documentary about the campaign to unionize the women who cleaned office buildings in central London at night, the filmmakers felt the need to turn—halfway through making the documentary—to experimental forms like confessionals and poetry to represent the tripartite relationship between the unions, the women, and established social orders. Run time is 90 minutes.
