Jule Collins Smith Museum to screen ‘Small, Beautifully Moving Parts’ Sept. 25

AUBURN UNIVERSITY – The Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art at Auburn University will screen “Small, Beautifully Moving Parts” as part of the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers Tuesday, Sept. 25, at 6 p.m. After the film, its directors and producers Annie Howell and Lisa Robinson will host a discussion about the film and their work, with a reception following the discussion.

“When technophile Sarah Sparks, played by Anna Margaret Hollyman, finds herself pregnant, she goes on a quest to find her mother from whom she has been estranged for several years,” said museum education curator Scott Bishop in describing the film. “Her journey leads her off the grid and on an exploration of how and why we communicate.”

Admission to the film and the museum are free courtesy of our Business Partners.

The Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers is a program of South Arts. Southern Circuit screenings are funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
