"Paterson" Screening

Join GARNER Arts Center in celebration & honor of Jim Jarmusch's latest film, Paterson, partially shot in the GARNER Historic District. Sit back and enjoy this acclaimed independent film in the 19th century dyeing warehouse, Dye Works. In his film Paterson, Jim Jarmusch explores the intersection between Humanism and Urbanism via a protagonist that functions as scribe and resident poet for the city he embodies. Paterson (Adam Driver, Girls), the man, is curator of the perpetual hum of the urban apparatus in which he's a cog. The film is an alluring portrayal of the illuminations of William Carlos Williams in his long-form poem "Paterson" published in 1946. At once, Paterson is a man, a poem, a city.  This screening will be followed by an open discussion guided by film professionals exploring the themes presented in the film and poem and leading an important discussion about how these are relevant to an emergent movement to redefine urban and post-industrial places and to further understand how place is connected to civilization.
