Co-presented with the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance. Cynthia Nixon delivers a triumphant performance as Emily Dickinson as she personifies the wit, intellectual independence and pathos of the poet whose genius only came to be recognized after her death. Acclaimed British director Terence Davies (House of Mirth, The Deep Blue Sea) exquisitely evokes Dickinson's deep attachment to her close knit family along with the manners, mores and spiritual convictions of her time that she struggled with and transcended in her poetry.

Chris Burden guaranteed his place in art history in 1971 with a period of often dangerous and at time stomach-churning performances. In BURDEN, Timothy Marrinan and Richard Dewey look at the artist's works and private life with an innovative mix of still-potent videos of his 70s performances, personal videos and audio recordings, friends, fellow students and colleagues, critics' comments and latter day footage at his Topanga Canyon studio, all peppered with his thoughts and musings through the years.
