Welcome to the Yale Club of Houston - An Evening of Films with Two Yale Connections


An Evening of Films with Two Yale Connections
   

On the evening of Saturday, February 28th, a number of films on the subject of “Southern Women” will be presented at 14 Pews, the center for independent, culturally significant films. Each of the short films that will be screened has a Yale connection: each film is a work by former Yale professor Bill Ferris and Houston-area Yale alumni Bill Howze has helped organize the screenings. The films will explore the artistic process through the eyes of four women: a writer, a quilt maker, a painter, and a woman that engages in needlepoint stitchery. Following the presentation of the films, Bill Ferris will discuss the films and answer questions via videochat. More information on the event is available here. Tickets are available at 14pews.com.
