That's the basis for a woman like that, an unorthodox new biopic from independent filmmaker Ellen Weissbrod (Listen Up: The Lives of Quincy Jones), wherein Artemisia crosses paths with Weissbrod in the tangled web of a time-traveling narrative. "In her art-making, with her storytelling, Artemisia has left a trail of breadcrumbs to each of us to find our own way to become 'a woman like that,'" Weissbrod says in her filmmaker's statement.
Weissbrod will be on the scene to answer questions about where those crumbs might lead when the film screens tonight at 7 p.m. at the Denver Art Museum, 100 West 14th Avenue Parkway, courtesy of the DAM's Friends of Painting and Sculpture support group. Admission is free, but seating is on a first-come, first-served basis; call 720-913-0130.
