Beginning August 17, 2018, the Fullerton Museum will be presenting a series of films every third Friday of the month as curated by local filmmaker/ writer/photographer/musician Steve Elkins.

Each month, the films will center around a theme, a director, or a region of the world. The goal of the films is to explore cultural diversity and history through a blend of documentaries and narrative fiction. Before each screening, Mr. Elkins will welcome the audience with a brief introduction, providing historical and cultural context for a deeper appreciation of the film. After each screening, Mr. Elkins will open up the room for discussion of the film.

Here is a link to a video of Elkins discussing cinema and community:

In 2011, Elkins produced the award-winning “The Reach of Resonance” documentary. Filmed in ten countries, “The Reach Of Resonance” is a meditation on the meaning of music, which juxtaposes the creative paths of four musicians who use music to cultivate a deeper understanding of the world around them.

Elkins is currently working on his second documentary, which involves the ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, Switzerland.
