FILM at LACMA presents classic and contemporary narrative and documentary films, artists and their influences, emerging auteurs, international showcases, special guest-curated programs, and conversations with artists and special guests.
LACMA members are invited to join FILM at LACMA for a special screening of A House Made of Splinters and a post-screening conversation with director Simon Lereng Wilmont.
In this follow-up to his acclaimed first feature, The Distant Barking Dogs, filmmaker Simon Lereng Wilmont offers a unique look into how the long-term consequences of war on a society already under strain impact the most vulnerable. His is a poignant and deeply intimate portrait of a remarkable way station filled with care, support, and trust for a group of kids who are in desperate need of more. In this war-worn and impoverished corner of Eastern Ukraine where addiction casts a long shadow, there sits a safe haven for children temporarily removed from their parents. A House Made of Splinters follows three kids awaiting their fate—will they go back or move on to a new home?—while a group of dedicated social workers create small moments of joy and respite from childhoods all but lost.
You will receive a link to view the film on the event date.
