Western Perspectives Film Series: Monument Valley

This series highlights three films that offer different takes on the Western, chosen by the exhibition curator, an historian, and an artist. These films will help us examine questions of history, race, and American identity in the Western genre. Each film will be introduced by the artist or scholar who chose it, who will then lead a post-film audience discussion.
