Film: Erased James Franco photo

Artist and filmmaker Carter's 2008 film Erased James Franco features actor James Franco's reenactment of his past film roles and those of others including Julianne Moore and Rock Hudson. Denied the charged interplay with other actors, Franco adopts a strangely flat affect, imbuing the film with a quality that Carter describes as "like bloodletting or a kind of cleansing…a building up and tearing down, simultaneously." Directed by Carter, 2008. 63 minutes. Courtesy Yvon Lambert Gallery, Paris.

This program is free and open to the public. Seating is limited. Doors open 30 minutes prior.

 Xandra Eden, Curator of Exhibitions, gives a post-screening talk on Carter's films and multi-media works in conjunction with the exhibition Persona: A Body in Parts.


Persona: A Body in Parts and related public programs are made possible through the support of the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources, and Jaguar Land Rover of Greensboro, a Flow Automotive Company. Special thanks to Heather Flow and to Carol Cole and Seymour Levin.
