Screenings: Packed in a Trunk – The Lost Art of Edith Lake Wilkinson (2015)

September 16th, 2017 · No Comments

[streaming, Netflix]

Here’s a fascinating “discovery” doc, one that could form a solid trilogy alongside FINDING VIVIAN MAIER and SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN. The subject: a long-forgotten early 20th century lesbian painter who pioneered a print-making technique that was previously attributed to one of her male colleagues, and who was silenced by being signed away to a mental asylum for the last 35 years of her life. Her great-niece Jane Anderson – the force behind the discovery and essentially the co-subject of this film – also a lesbian artist, pursues Wilkinson’s story with a vigor and emotion that are clearly fueled by their parallel lives. Touching and enlightening.
