The Artists Love Movies Series, presented by the Sag Harbor Cinema Arts Center, continues on Sunday, August 26 with a screening of My Art with artist and photographer Laurie Simmons. After the screening, Simmons will discuss her directorial debut with producer, Andrew Fierberg. Her daughter, Lena Dunham will also be in attendance.

My Art is a feminist's take on a midlife crisis, as well as a moving film on the artistic process.

Simmons plays 65-year-old New Yorker, Ellie Shine, an artist whose career has fallen a bit flat. Spending the summer upstate, house-sitting, she takes two jobless actors (Robert Clohessy and Josh Safdie) for a project featuring a series of reenactments of old Hollywood films.

The film starts Parker Posey, as well as Simmons's two daughters Lena and Grace Dunham.

The film had its premiere at the 2016 Venice Film Festival and was released in select cities this past January by Film Movement.

Simmons is part of The Pictures Generation, a group of artists, including Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger, and Louise Lawler, who came of age in the early 1970s. Her work has been shown at the Museum of Modern Art, Artists Space, PS1 Contemporary Arts Center, Metro Pictures, and the Jewish Museum, and is featured in the permanent works of the Guggenheim, the Met, MOMA, MOCA, and the Whitney Museum.

The film will be screened at the Pierson High School Auditorium in Sag Harbor at 6 p.m.

Tickets are $10 and admission for kids under 14 is free.

The Pierson High School Auditorium is located at 200 Jermain Avenue in Sag Harbor. For more information and to make reservations, visit www.sagharborcinema.org.
