The Bainbridge Island Photo Club will host a movie night with the film,“Half Past Autumn – The Life and Works of Gordon Parks.”
The film will be screened at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 28 in Huney Hall in the Waterfront Park Community Center.
Parks was a true renaissance man. He was an accomplished photojournalist, poet, novelist, jazz pianist, contemporary song writer, abstract painter, classical composer and filmmaker. He worked for the FSA (and Striker), but also Vogue and Life in the 1940-’70s era, going all over the world covering and getting stories in a humane way. He was also the director of the 1971 film “Shaft” and many others.
All are welcome; admission is free and there will be popcorn and drinks.
