Winter at Westbeth
THU 27 APR

Australian documentarian Rohan Spong explores the vibrant characters of the elderly residents dwelling in New York's Westbeth Artists Housing.
"From 1970 onwards, Westbeth Artists Housing in Manhattan's Far West Village became a creative experiment. Formerly the offices of the company spawned by inventor Alexander Graham Bell, the site threw open its doors to New York's artistic community, offering dancers, poets and everyone in between a place to live and work.
"Australian filmmaker Rohan Spong's poignant follow up to 2011's All the Way Through Evening, Winter at Westbeth is steeped in the history of the arts in the city, and splashed with colour from the dynamic real-life characters profiled and the bright hues they choose to wear."
