DIVIDING ASHES. (DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED) A man falls through the ice in Central Park on the coldest day of winter, taking the woman who tries to save him on an upside-down journey historical and hysterical. A quirky, moving, fanciful exploration of personal responsibility, our place in history, and the debts we owe to those who love us, from noted playwright Chiori Miyagawa.

EXPOSURE TIME. (DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED) Can technology irrevocably alter who we are and how we perceive the world? A Susan Smith Blackburn-nominee, Kim Merrill takes us on a hypnotic journey into the birth of photography and the complex psychological, artistic, and emotional arithmetic that entwined and ensnared together pioneer photographer Julia Margaret Cameron, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll), and their mutual muse, Alice Lidell. An adventure on both side of the Looking Glass.
