Artist Discussion: Jay Bolotin & The Book of Only Enoch

Date: 
Friday, April 16, 2021 - 5:30pm to 6:30pm

Join acclaimed interdisciplinary artist Jay Bolotin for a conversation about his current animated film, based on his 2011-2014 print portfolio of 20 woodcut and relief etchings. 

The Book of Only Enoch is the story of a sensitive Jewish boy from Kentucky and his journey of self-awareness and spiritual clarity. Created using countless drawings and sets made by the artist, the film possesses the magic realism of Bolotin’s 2019 film, The Silence of Professor Tösla, a collaboration with writer Ilan Stavans, that has won prizes at festivals around the world.
