Ursula Von Rydingsvard: Into Her Own
This compelling documentary portrait explores the life and work of artist Ursula von Rydingsvard. Born in Germany to Ukrainian-Polish parents, von Rydingsvard’s family was detained for five years in a post-WWII refugee camp before moving to America. The trauma of this experience, coupled with an abusive childhood, left indelible marks on the artist that she channels into her unparalleled artistic practice. Working primarily with cedar, von Rydingsvard’s monumental sculptures have been featured in the Venice Biennale, and are held in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
This film will be available to watch on Thursday, April 2 anytime between 5-11pm PDT. RSVP to receive access. Connect with director Daniel Traub and other viewers by sharing your thoughts and questions on Twitter using #AskCinemaOrange.
Presented in partnership with Newport Beach Film Festival and organized by Leslie Feibleman, director of special programs and community cinema, Newport Beach Film Festival.
