About This Screening
Robert Todd has made over twenty films since 1990. His visually stunning body of work, not easily defined or categorized, comes from a deeply personal place, which is quiet, thoughtful, and curious. Cinema Project is excited to have Robert Todd in attendance to present three of his films that look at the personal, political, and social ways in which we choose to live. Todd's most recent film, In Loving Memory uses the common ground of our own mortality as its starting point to explore sovereignty of life and criminal justice in the US. Using narration, dramatic re-enactments, and footage shot at maximum-security penitentiaries across the United States, the film provides a glimpse into the lives of the many men and women who are living out their last days on death row.
