This summer, the National Gallery of Art has reached deeply into the our collection to present “From Vault to Screen,” an eight-part series that serves as historical overview and ongoing testament to Canyon Cinema and its filmmakers. The program concludes this weekend with two screenings of recent material by Canyon artists.
