Earthwork is the story of real-life crop artist Stan Herd who, in 1994, risked everything to travel from Kansas City to New York to create a massive environmental artwork on land owned by Donald Trump. Starring John Hawkes (Winter’s Bone, Deadwood, Eastbound & Down). (93 mins., 35mm)

Kudzu Vine, which opens the evening, is a black-and-white cinemascope ode to the maligned vine that has overtaken much of the south—and to the human efforts to coexist with it. (20 mins., 35mm)

Jean Dubuffet, Vaches au pre (Cows in a meadow), 1954
