Aspen Art Museum’s moving image initiative places film and video, arguably the most dominant art form of the last fifty years, in direct dialogue with contemporary art practices on view.

About the Summer Series: Coming of Age

How do we develop through motion pictures? This summer, the AAM’s Movies at the Museum program explores the coming-of-age genre, highlighting films set across the United States that capture personal and social evolutions. Featuring movies from the past fifty years, the series takes viewers into the lives of children, adolescents, and young adults—exploring personal discoveries, friendships, and hardships that define the experience of growing up.

About the film

Frances Ha

Directed by Noah Baumbach
86 min
Rated R

Frances lives in New York, but she doesn’t really have an apartment. She is an apprentice for a dance company, but she’s not really a dancer. She has a best friend named Sophie, but they aren’t really speaking anymore. This wry and sparkling city romance uncovers the frustrations and the joys of being young and unsure of where to go next.

Films are presented free of charge on Level 3 at 8 p.m. Drinks and free popcorn are available at the museum café, SO.

AAM education programs are made possible by the Questrom Education Fund. Additional support for Movies at the Museum is provided by the Etkin Family Digital Media and Moving Image Fund and Dancing Bear Aspen.
