CU Maurice River presents a double feature for April’s CU Social Film Series at the Levoy Theatre.

First, we’ll show SHATTERED: Portrait of a Glass Factory, an ArtC documentary about the history of the Glass Industry in Millville, NJ and how its demise affected the city. The film features the work of two Millville fine art photographers and the amazing photos they captured of the closed factories. It also touches on how the arts are playing a role in Millville’s future as they pick up the pieces.

Second to be screened is Paul J. Stankard: Flower & Flame, the latest documentary from award-winning filmmaker Daniel R. Collins, which celebrates the life’s work of internationally acclaimed glass artist Paul J. Stankard. Inspired by his rural childhood memories, Paul evolved the centuries-old craft tradition of the glass paperweight into a fine art form, battling dyslexia and defying critics on his way to international fame. For more than 60 years, Paul has honed his skills in Southern NJ, the historic epicenter of American glassmaking. Now in his 80th year, he is still creating some of the best work of his career. View the trailer for the film here.

After the films, please stay for a Paul J. Stankard Flower & Flame Speaker Panel and Q&A with Paul J. Stankard, Director Daniel Collins, and Phil Surdam of Chemglass Life Sciences – Major Film Sponsor.
