Gibbes Museum of Art

Whether a classic noir or a cutting edge documentary, the Gibbes believes in the power of great filmmaking: to bring people together, to put audiences in touch with new ideas, and to celebrate the diversity of the human experience. Join us this winter as we launch this limited engagement series with a focus on representations of the Southern Gothic in American cinema.

Registration for this screening is now CLOSED.

February 25th, 2021, 6PM screening: Eve's Bayou, directed by Kasi Lemmons (109 mins)

The debut feature of Harriet director Kasi Lemmons, Eve’s Bayou is a haunting coming-of-age story and meditation on the power of memory to both heal and reopen lasting wounds. Movingly conjuring a Louisiana childhood steeped in local culture and family lore, Eve’s Bayou follows the awakening of a young girl as she comes to realize that her father is not the man and hero she once believed.
