film/Still: Medicine for Melancholy

April 9, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

This season, the Clyfford Still Museum is delighted to partner with Alamo Drafthouse to present films that relate to both the exhibitions on view at the Museum and the wider art world. At every screening, you’ll enjoy more than 30 beers on tap; a full selection of wines and handcrafted cocktails; and a multicourse menu with service right to your seat. Join the Still for new art documentaries about important artists of the 20th century as well as films, screened on the occasion of Shade: Clyfford Still / Mark Bradford, that explore African American identity, racism, art, and human relationships.

Medicine for Melancholy (Barry Jenkins, 2008, 88 minutes)

Twenty-four hours in the tentative relationship of two young San Franciscans also dealing with the conundrum of being a minority in a rapidly gentrifying city. Medicine for Melancholyis both a timeless story about fleeting connections and a heart-stopping snapshot of a time and place that will never exist again.  The first feature film from writer and director Barry Jenkins, Medicine for Melancholy received its premiere at the 2008 San Francisco International Film Festival.  Jenkins is the director of Moonlight, which recently won the 2017 Academy Award for best motion picture.
