Film at CAT - Aggie

View Screenings

Starting Fri, Oct 23, 2020

“Aggie,” is a documentary that explores the nexus of art, race, and justice through the incredible story of an art collector and philanthropist’s life.

Emmy-nominated director Catherine Gund focuses on her mother Agnes “Aggie” Gund’s journey to give viewers an understanding of the power of art to transform consciousness and inspire social change. Aggie is internationally recognized for her robust and prescient support of artists - particularly women and people of color - and her unwavering commitment to social justice issues. After falling in love with art as a high-school student, Aggie discovers a new way of looking at the world. Aggie sells Roy Lichtenstein’s “Masterpiece” for $165 million to start the Art for Justice Fund. The proceeds from one of the highest grossing artworks ever sold fuel a monumental effort to reform the American criminal justice system and end mass incarceration. The film captures Aggie as a true maverick, who demonstrates the unique role and potential of collectors and benefactors to use art to fight injustice. This is untapped terrain, and we see Aggie leading the way. [2020, USA, 92 min, Rated: NR].

Sabina Dana Plasse of “Film Threat” exclaims, “Aggie is a film every art center in the country should show to its supporters and community as its positive message is inspiring, aspiring, and beautiful.” Michael Ordona of the “Los Angeles Times” remarks, “A well-made portrait of an admirable woman you come away feeling you'd like to meet.”

Streaming Film - Coming Home Again

Starting Fri, Oct 23, 2020

“Coming Home Again,” is an intimate family drama about a mother, a son, and the burdens of family expectations.

Chang-rae (played by Justin Chon), a first-generation Korean American, has returned to his family home in San Francisco to care for his ailing mother (played by Jackie Chung). He wants only to fulfill his role as the supportive son, but must also come to terms with his conflicted emotions towards his mother. The film takes place over the course of one full day. During this day, he attempts to prepare a traditional Korean dinner for New Year's Eve - one his mother always cooked for the family. The care and precision that goes into preparing this meal gives him time to reflect on the intense relationship between them. Memories about it become a doorway into a woman who was so much more than the mother he thought he knew. Chang-rae is now faced with the dilemma of living with the permanent scars of family sacrifice unresolved, or the risk of opening new wounds. [2020, US, 86 min, Rated: NR].

Christopher Llewellyn Reed of “Hammer to Nail” says, “It's a profound experience, and by the end of ‘Coming Home Again,’ we feel at home ourselves, and transported by the visit.” Robert Daniels of “RogerEbert.com” writes, “Chung's performance here is incredible. Don’t miss it!”
