The Institute of Contemporary Art in Miami presents us this group of paintings by William N. Copley, an American painter who lived for more than 10 years in France. He used his own life experiences and travels to offer us a critical yet humorous perspective on both the European and American cultures. Through his own type of art, at the crossroad between Surrealism and Pop Art, Copley depicts topics such as nationalism, eroticism, and art history. 


World Premiere Screening of BURNING SHADOW by Alexandre Nahon

December 8, 2018 at 7pm at the Miami Beach Cinematheque

Burning Shadow is a twisted, supernatural thriller about obsession and the darkness of the human soul. Charlie (Matthew Dennis Lewis, Godless) is a young loner who works at a diner for a mirthless boss (Julie Delpy, Before Midnight), struggling to even pay his rent. Seemingly his only friend is regular customer Mr. Jones (Roger Guenveur Smith, American Gangster), an affable businessman with ties to the mob. Jones also runs a nightclub which Charlie visits and soon begins his obsession with one of the dancers, Summer (Roxane Mesquida, Kiss of the Damned). Charlie crosses paths with a blind homeless man who is his exact double, a doppelganger. What follows is a haunting decent into fear, desperation, infatuation and greed, told through the lens of classic film noir, with a celestial twist.

Burning Shadow is the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Alexandre Nahon.  Nahon co-wrote 2 Days in New York starring Chris Rock and Julie Delpy. He is also a reknowned photographer, having shot campaigns for Macy’s and music videos for such artists as Lykke Li and Adan Jodorowsky.

The film will be followed by Q&A with Director ALEXANDRE NAHON and the opening reception of the MBC exhibition of his 3/D photography. This is a by invitation only event.
