As part of the first Cinema Columbus film festival, we’re hosting the Columbus theatrical premiere of Jennifer Reeder’s Night’s End followed by a Q&A session with the past Wexner Center Artist Residency Award winner.
After experimenting with the genre in past works, celebrated filmmaker Jennifer Reeder embraces horror conventions in Night’s End with her characteristically bold approach. In this new film, an anxious recluse unwittingly moves into a haunted apartment and hires a mysterious stranger to perform an exorcism—with a horrifying twist. The feature stars Geno Walker, Kate Arrington, Felonious Munk, and Michael Shannon. (81 mins., DCP)
Stay for a postscreening Q&A with Reeder and Columbus filmmaker Mike Olenick, who edited Night’s End and several of Reeder’s other films, many while the artist was in residence at the Wexner Center’s own Film/Video Studio. Read more about Reeder’s history at the Wex.
We’re thrilled to partner with the Columbus Association for the Performing Arts (CAPA), Film Columbus, Drexel Theatre, Gateway Film Center, and Studio 35 Cinema & Drafthouse in presenting this event. Check out the rest of the festival schedule.
