Free entry

For The Glen Eira Storytelling Festival (22 June – 7 July 2019), MUMA presented two cult art house films on the last two Saturdays of Michael Stevenson: Serene Velocity in Practice: MC510/CS183.

Directed by Terry Zwigoff, Art School Confidential (2016, USA, 102 minutes, rated R) follows Jerome (Max Minghella), an aspiring artist who arrives at a prestigious American art institute to study, where competition and petty jealousy consume both the faculty and his fellow students. Surrounded by every art school cliché on Earth, Jerome maps out a bizarre plan to become famous that has some unexpected consequences. Art School Confidential also stars John Malkovich, Jim Broadbent, Anjelica Huston and Sophia Myles.

The Glein Eira Storytelling Festival is a sixteen-day arts festival in its ninth year held in diverse venues around the City of Glen Eira.
