"Tongue in Cheek"
The Inflatable Art of Jimmy Kuehnle [link]

Hudson River Museum
It's not marble, it's not bronze, but it is sculpture ─ bright and bouncing. Jimmy Kuehnle's inflatables are exciting art form and witty commentary on our interests and enthusiasms.
This summer, Kuehnle's inflatables invade the Hudson River Museum's limestone Victorian home, Glenview, and the Brutalist concrete spaces in its modern wing, mushrooming in the galleries. The sculptor, who at times can be found inside his huge and popular costumes inflated by 12-volt motor blowers, says, When you're inside an inflatable, the lack of 90-degree angles and natural architectural forms makes for a surreal experience.

"Free in Deed" [link]
Jacob Burns
Reel Talk with Jonathan Demme and actress Edwina Findley.
Jonathan Demme's Rarely Seen Cinema. An astonishingly moving and rich American film, Free in Deed is based on mind-boggling true events from recent history in Memphis, TN, and shot largely on location in the storefront evangelical church where real world spiritual events turned darkly challenging for the congregation—and law enforcement. A true "Black Lives Matter" masterpiece, the movie features extraordinary performances that feel so true that it's kind of shocking to discover that no, those amazing performances were done by accomplished professional actors, not "real people" whose essences were somehow magically transferred by the cinema gods to this singularly rewarding picture." – Jonathan Demme, host of Rarely Seen Cinema
Sunday, June 26 @ 7pm
"Presenting Princess Shaw" [link]
Jacob Burns
Q&A JBFC Founder Stephen Apkon with Princess Shaw via SKYPE. This uplifting documentary produced by JBFC Founder Stephen Apkon and directed by former JBFC International Fellow Ido Haar is a testament to creative expression as tool for healing and the power of the internet to establish unlikely allies and true connection. The film follows Samantha Montgomery, a 39-year-old health aide struggling to make ends meet in a tough New Orleans neighborhood and harboring the (possibly unrealistic) dream of being a successful singer/songwriter. Under the stage name Princess Shaw, Montgomery channels her present and past hardships into her music, performing for small (and sometimes non-existent) crowds at area open mics, and uploading confessional videos to YouTube that have view counts that rarely go above 20. But unbeknownst to her, her intimate videos featuring her incredibly raw and vulnerable singing voice have caught the attention of Kutiman, an enigmatic composer, musician, and video artist in Israel who creates video mash ups of amateur YouTube performers.
