Conversations in Vermont

Two Films by Robert Frank

This screening, presented to complement the exhibition Robert Frank and Todd Webb: Across America, 1955, is included with Museum admission. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Robert Frank’s relationship with his children Pablo (1951–1994) and Andrea (1953–1974) is explored in his first overtly autobiographical film. He visits them at a free school in rural Vermont where he interviews them about their feelings, their upbringing, and what it was like to grow up in a bohemian world with parents who are artists.

Restoration by the Museum of Modern Art with support from the Celeste Bartos Fund for Film Preservation.

The exhibition "Robert Frank and Todd Webb: Across America" is organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
