Art in Focus with Marion Wolberg Weiss
Marion Wolberg Weiss
Film historian

Watching movies has become a different experience during the pandemic. Viewers are often isolated, interrupted and disorientated. Yet Netflix has been offering films that are especially arresting and offbeat, like “The Queen's Gambit” and “I Care a Lot,” with daring characters, surrealistic plots, strong female characters and experimental styles. True-life movies, like Aaron Sorkin's “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” are similarly compelling and relevant during this troublesome period.

Marion Wolberg Weiss is the host of the Pollock Krasner House's long-running series, “Artists on Film,” which was cancelled last fall due to COVID-19 restrictions. A former art critic for Dan’s Papers, she currently writes the “Media Matters” blog. The author of a critical biography of Martin Scorsese, she has conducted workshops on Politics and the Media for The American Film Institute and has taught for over 30 years at such institutions as New York University and American University. She holds a Master’s degree in Media from New York University and a Ph.D. in Communications from Howard University.
